How are your tires holding up?
The AWD on the TLX still has a front-wheel drive bias. To save gas, AWD turns off and it is in front-wheel drive. That probably contributes to the front tires being more worn than the rear wheels. Also, only 90% of power is sent to the back wheels with SH-AWD. The front tires are still spinning faster than the rear tires, contributing to more tire wear in the front.
