Do you drivers leave the AWD on full time ?
I do
The car dealership said i shouldn't
My thoughts are it's a feature of the car so why wouldn't i use AWD full time

I leave it on all the time. Doesn't really make a difference in MPG and makes for some good handling.

I only put the iAWD system on during winter time and when it is raining badly.

I might add that when I feel in the mood to hammer hard through the twisties on dry pavement I will engage it as well.

What size types do you have. I have 235.45.18
Had to change my fronts after 12 months. No looks like i need to change again in 12 months.
Are these cars hard on the front types.
I never had this issue in the past.
I dont do that many km around 15000 per year

Rear tires wear on the inside edge even w/ the revised alignment specs. Never had any issues w/ front wear. The Kiz handled better w/ the original specs, but ate tires extremely quickly. These cars are very finicky as far as alignment is concerned I've found. Simply "within (the broad) spec" isn't good enough I've found. Dead nuts on works best for me and the way I drive. I've had many alignments done at several different shops and have settled on a local chassis repair expert as the best place for my alignments. The guy running the rack KNOWS suspension geometry and understands what I'm explaining regarding the handling characteristics. He really digs the way the Kiz handles.
