A friend had the same problem but had very little wear on three of them and close to a bald spot on one of them also. I checked with him...He had 8000 miles on them when the spot was very evident. He replaced that one tire with a new one and now has 13K on the three original tires with no issues.
He brought the wheel to me to see if it had a wobble or out of round condition that caused the wear but I found it to be well within 1/8" tolerance.
Good Day!
