2010 Focus SES - 22k Miles, needs new tires already?

I have about 22k miles on my Focus SES 4dr. It has the Kuhmo Solus KH16 stock tires on it. Took it to the tire shop to get rotated and they said 2 of them are at 3/32 and need to be replaced. Why did they wear down so fast?

I remember seeing a TSB for front end alignment causing premature tire wear.

Any ideas?

What is a good set of tires to replace them for about 100 a tire or so? I think they are the 215/45/17 or somewhere around there

Mostly just commuting. Maybe some hard turns once in a while but mostly straight line driving. I want them to be fairly quiet and last a while. So mainly just a normal tire that gives a decent ride, lasts a while and has decent grip. Something good all around.

Thanks!

with 12K, you should have more than 6/32nds.

I'm on kumho escta all season high performance and they're very good with daily commuting. I got them on tirerack for 75 a piece, I think. Installed them when I had 4k miles now I'm at 30k and still have about 5/32 left. Yes I do baby my car but still take corners like NASCAR

Actually almost 3/32. Have about 1k left until for some new tires
