generally, balljoints and tie rod ends can be checked for wear/free play - if there is free play they will need to be replaced - first have the alignment checked - that is probably the best way to verify the reason for tire wear
other possibilities are bad front sway bar bushings, and front suspension bushings - check sway bar for extra free play, and you should be able to check the suspension bushings easily when car is raised
bratman2 is right about the torque for the wheel nuts - check those too - but mine have never been loose (torqued them & put new cotter pin in last when I last had the hubs off - no prob. before or since)

I go thru a set of tires in 5k miles....but then again i drive the roads like its the WRC....
I'd have the alighment checked again....just to be safe.
