well i have had my wheels on for about a year and i have put about 20xxx miles on them. the only problem i have had is with the rear tires getting the inside edge chewed up. about 3-4 inches. i have had 4 alignments done by my friend at the dealer and he says that it is in spec. i am going on my 3rd set of rear tires and im gonna replace the fronts this time as well. i run 225/40/18 front and 255 35 rear for a 1mm rolling diam difference. have any of you had this problem also.

here are some pics!

Those look like Pilot Sports. If they are then 20-25k miles is pretty normal. They look like they've never been rotated (because you can't with a staggered setup) but there are no signs of feathering, cupping, or other alignment issues.

If you are going on your third set of rear tires in 20k miles then there is a problem. It still looks like normal wear that has been transferred to the insides by negative camber. If they are like that after say 8000 miles then you may also have some rear toe or something. Usually there is another telltale sign like cupping that would indicate a wheel bearing issue.
