Default passenger side tire wear.

Car is a 2012 wrx all suspension is stock. Im at 9k roughly ( had all seasons for about 2k before running the stocks again ) and just rotated my fronts to the rear.

The car has always and still tracks straight with no vibration.

All tires have been run within 1psi of eachother checked at least once a week.

I noticed the fronts were more worn than the rears as expected. However both passenger side tires were worn about the same. So driver rear, now my driver front tire, has more tread than the other 3.

I drive 40mi daily round trip often aggressively. Usually a different route each way due to traffic. But it hasnt been raced yet.

Is it just my driving style and different routes combining to wear out my rr tire faster than the left rear?

Two questions for you.

1) What A/S tires were you running?

2) You've had an alignment done already, correct? What were the specs?
