    My last set of tyres (continentals) wore out on the back before the front, although it was even wear.

    Presume you've had the geometry checked?

    If it was the n/s/f tyre it would wear greater due to turning a further distance than the o/s/f due to driving on the left hand side!,have you had fronts rears swaped at any point?,could be one tyre from faulty batch,if not check rear springs stabiliser bar ect i would!!
