Are you doing alot of local driving? Maybe your alignment needs to be re-checked.
That's some pretty good mileage on the tires. I have similar driving habits, with driving aggressively, but not wasting the tires in 1st gear.

I feel DCT helps with this. If I was driving a regular manual, I'd usually get a lot more wheel spin in 1st, 2nd and 3rd so as not to wear the clutch.
