Goodyear RSAs - 25,000miles, these were recent but not BRAND new when i bought the car. i would estimate they had 30k on them at the end

Futura Touring HR (renamed Cooper Lifeliner H-rated) - 40,000 miles

BFG traction t/a'* lasted me just under 30k. I drove the SH*T out of those tires

Got myself 200 bucks off my new set of tires because of that though.

it would be nice to see the wear pattern on your tires, at 7000 miles, you are definitely looking at some kind of alignment/suspension/inflation issue, unless you do lots of burnouts
