How often do you rotate tires? Do they stay on long enough that you can see that the wear is happening on the front rather than the rear? Is there any cupping in the wear pattern?
Normally with FWD I would expect to wear the outside edge of the front a bit more than the rest of the tire. I see this on our c900's, but to be honest, on our 2004 9-5, I have if anything noticed what you are seeing. That said, I rotate often enough, that the wear pattern could have been started on the rear and these things do not always even out. Hard to tell if this is still an issue on my newest tires, or on the 2005 which is a new enough car to me that I can't really make any significant observations.
