Think maybe the track miles on R compound tires have anything to do with it? Regardless it is getting checked again in 50k miles just to be safe.

doubt your tire compound had anything to do with the increased wear, but the track miles possibly did. interesting that #5 is so much worse than the rest, but glad you got them changed when you did! that looks like it would have let go pretty soon.
