Default Quick Tire Wear Question

The front tires on our cars should wear faster than the rear tires, right? Thanks!

I take it as a yes then.

I rotate every oil change but forgot whether I did it last time. Checked the tread depth but somehow the rear tires are 1/32" lower than the front tires.

I guess I'll just wait another 5-7.5k miles before I rotate them again then.

Thanks.

Sorry, I just had to.

OP, yes, the front tires tend to wear faster. They do more work (turning, more brake bias, carry more weight) so they wear a bit more than the rears.
