Mine lasted a bit longer, but I had the same issue. A lot of speed combined with very soft shoulders causes the PSS's to wear very quickly on the front outer edges. I found 34 hot in the front seemed to be the happy spot. Still 500 miles is much quicker than would be expected. I got about 5k out of the fronts with multiple track days on them and I drive very aggressively so unless you are drifting corners or scalloping(rolling over) the tires then they were probably bad to begin with. If they won't replace them and you want to stick with them you could buy a used set of fronts on ebay that match the wear on the rears. Or try a different set altogether, RE-11's are my preference for a combo of track performance and tread wear, but there are tons of options and opinions on tires here.
