Front tire wears faster with rear Darkside?

I didn't pay real close attention to the front tread remaining when I put on the rear Darkside about 1500 miles ago, but it sure seems like the front is wearing more on the left and right sides.

Just curious if any of you (rear) Darksiders noticed your front tire wearing faster after going over?

I replaced both tires within 100 miles of each other.
went darkside with Yokohama envigor and put a Avon cobra up front, with only 2,500 miles,( loving going darkside),I have noticed no unusual wear on the front.
Then again, before going darkside I never really noticed any front wear until about 4,000 miles on the front...
