The front tires are still spinning faster than the rear tires, contributing to more tire wear in the front.
Pardon my ignorance, but given the same sized wheels front and back how is it possible for the front to be spinning faster (eg doing more rotations) than the back unless the wheels are "burning rubber?" So far, my the back end of my car has gone exactly the same distance as the front end.

The AWD does reduce rubber burning starts, though. Tire wear is also related to bearing weight. Since the engine is in the front those wheels will tend to wear faster. That is independent of the presence of SH-AWD, though.
