Default Useing up rear tires

I wear the rear tires a lot more than the fronts, good quess would be twice as much than the fronts. Reasons why? I thought I would use up the fronts more being heavier on the front and the car's wanting to push.

stock suspension WRX, 17" subaru wheels, lots of back country roads, good even wear across the tires.

How often do you rotate your tires?
How often do you get an alignment?
What are your air pressures in your tires?

Driving style. I bet you are the type that brakes early, gets the back to rotate, and powers through the corners. Reason why: because I do the same. I also really wear the rears more than the fronts-even on my Baja.

I do it even when I'm driving normal speeds and don't think about it. It took awhile for the wife to get use to it (getting on the gas entering the corner). I think it comes from years and years of racing karts.

If your tires have even wear across the tread your pressures are perfect.
