Default Anyone wear tires out really fast on their Prius?

I am at Goodyear put the 3 set of tires on my 2010 Prius. We cannot get more than 20-30k miles out of a set of tires. Is it us? or anyone else having an issue like this? We wore out the Yokahama's that came with it really fast.... Then have had Goodyear Assurance, now I am upgrading from there...

Try inspecting camber and toe settings. Typically if your tires feature more wear on the inside half of your tire your vehicle has too much negative camber. Same goes for the outside half of your tire except in that case it is too much positive camber . However if your vehicle features "scuffing" tire wear it is usually toe in or toe out. Front wheel drive vehicles typically have some minor toe in but excessive toe can cause tires to wear much more quickly. These issues are typically common on nearly all vehicles and aren't expensive to repair unless crucial suspension components have been damaged and are in need or repair or replacement.

These are the first of several possible things it could be. Keep in mind though if you are not familiar with your vehicle take it to a mechanic who can diagnose the issue accordingly.
