I've seen a number of brand new tires be completely junk, but since it took a few months to appear then X2 to Heiss and Magus. How does the steering wheel sit when you are driving straight? I'd get an alignment first, I'd assume that because you just put new tires on the front then they are in better shape then the rear so I wouldn't rotate them unless you want to do side to side

Toe is the main killer of tires and the biggest noise maker, camber wouldn't cause more noise unless it was really off and you're to the metal in the tire, that would make a lot of noise
