Have your front end checked for alignment and front end problems.

What causes the wear on the tires. Also how can I tell if there are other issues such as steering and suspension

The wear is caused by the alignmenet being out of whack. If you have hit a curb or something similar it could do that. Or worn suspension pieces that have made it go out of aliignment. Also not rotating your tires every 7000 miles or so.
