When the outside edges of the front tires wear severely, it usually means
the alignment is "toed in" too much (the fronts of the tires are closer
together than the backs). You can confirm the wear by putting strips of
masking tape across the front tires and driving a km or so on mostly
straight road. The tape wears the way the tires will wear.
A wheel alignment is a very good place to start. I'm sure it isn't correct
