try using 37 front and 40 rears. you may need to harden up the front springs to use a softer tyre. rear tyre wear can be caused by lack of traction. if you spin up the tryes then they will wear more. sometimes a thin diff oil can cause the unloaded tyre to spin also. a softer tyre can create more grip and by this can create the same or even less tyre wear, so many things to try.
often i will stagger tyres , if the left wears more, then i will use harder tyres in a longer main on the left side. this will even out left to right tyre wear, but you need to work out a shore from front to rear that wears even then make setup changes to accomodate.

Yea, simple and beautiful...... and get more steering too.

( I use 37 front 40 rear for high traction, or 35 front 40 rear for low traction ).

Guys, Thanks for the reply! For my case i think is bec my car slide too much n wheel spin which had cause the tires to wear much faster. Therefore if i increase more grip at my rear ( softer suspension ) will it reduce the wear? at the same time may i know how do u guys usually do setting for the rear? harder suspension or softer ? As for me is quite hard for me to use front n rear diff shore therefore i will always purchase one set of same shore tires! ha!

yes, more overdrive to either axle causes more wear on that axle, and less wear on the other one. But be careful, very much rear overdrive with harder rear tires would be very difficult to drive.
