The tire mounted with 'inside' facing out would have had less than optimum performance and possibly irregular wear on that tire. It is unlikely that it would have caused the front tires to wear unevenly.
With regard to the speed of wear on the rear, how many miles are on the tires and what is the tread depth in 32nds of an inch?
