Most tires come with a 30-60K warranty, better ones coming with 60K. Performance tires often do not last very long at all, because to be sticky, the compound is relatively soft making it wear much easier. Harder tires last longer, but don't handle all that well. But, even for a performance tire, I would expect at least 30K, and would dissappointed otherwise. Even these crappy turanza's have lasted about 30K for me, and have plenty left. I'm replacing them soon, only to improve the ride and handling, not because of wear.
Are you sure it's just the tire? Wear in one spot (outside, middle, inner) could be caused by suspension issues too, ie. camber and alignment. You may also want to check with the dealer about getting a new one under warranty, it'll be pro-rated, but at least you can change 'em all together later.
