What is the nature of the wear,
centre of tread = over-inflation
both outer edges = under-inflation
patchy wear = poss suspension fault
wear on one edge indicates wheel alignment problem, was your car tracked on a flat surface, if not the tracking guages will give inaccurate results? Try a four wheel alignment centre to check camber/castor.
sometimes ball joint / wheel bearing / driveshaft wear can cause uneven tyre wear.
hope this helps in some way.
