2007 Toyota Yaris - Uneven Tire Wear

I have very cheap tires, which are wearing heavily in the front only but on the outer sides on both sides of the tire. This is happening to the two front tires only, what would cause this problem?

Poor alignment, aggressive driving, cheap tires… in that order.

By “outer sides of the tire” does that mean outside edges of EACH tire? That is alignment. Or both tires have worn out the EACH side of EACH tire? That is consistently too low a tire pressure.

You should rotate the tires each time you get an oil change. It evens out the wear patterns and your tires will last longer.
