Unhappy rear tire wear issue. help!

IVe been in the 4G community since 2013 and have had 3 4th gens over that span. (went to subaru and that didnt work well)

so currently I have a 2008 GT 6speed. I installed Godspeed coilovers maybe 2 months ago now. The car is still on the factory 18s. Well about 2k miles ago I put some summer Bridgestone Patenza's on it (75% tread when I put them on)

Well the car was aligned after it was lowered and everything was very dang close to factory spec. But tonight I noticed the rear tires are down to 15% tread. After only 1500 miles or so on them. The fronts are still 70-75%. The coils are 16way adjustable. 12/16 in front 10/16 in rear.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is doing this?

If you showed the tread we could see the wear pattern better. As nice as the other pictures are, they don't really help

The tires are wearing evenly. So it doesnt seem to be a camber issue

I dont know much of anything about lowering but maybe its the stiffer suspension using harder static pressure on the tires wearing faster just a theory
Like i said idk crap about lowering but thats my guess if all is wearingg evenly
