Tire help, please!

Hey everyone! I am relatively new here, and please don't beat me up too bad on this post. I had to get new lower tie rods, all 4 ball joints, and front shocks back in August. At that time, I got an alignment as well. I needed new tires as well, but had to wait 2 weeks to get them. Well, I just had them rotated (I know, I know, it;s about 3,000 miles over the 3,000 mile recommendation), and when I did, I noticed the inside tread of the tires (originally on the front, now they're on the back) was worn down to the belt. I don't drive aggressively and I haven't used the AWD or 4hi at all. I got original oem size tires. I have a 2005 envoy xuv, I6. the tires had about 9000 miles, if that, on them. I guess my questions are: 1) Is that normal? and 2) Would an alignment before I got my new tires installed cause this? Any info is appreciated!
Update: here's what I got: Michelin LTX A/T 2

I'm not saying that, I got an alingment chech and everything cleared. You can still look into it but I kinda just went with it by keeping my tires rotated and balanced on a regular.

Maybe... Depends on the tire and rim. Personally I wouldn't dare-load rating prob isn't the same which could affect how many people/gear you haul. Traction will be worse than the factory tires and handling too. Are you trying to save a few bucks? Stick to stock or go bigger. 235/70 is smallest I've heard anyone go.
