Quattro tire alignment

I had my car aligned last April, and in December, when I put my snows
on, I noticed severe wear of the inner edge of the tires.  All
four showed the wear.  I rotated my tires in September, and I had put
11,000 miles on the tires when they were taken off.  The tires are
Yokohama A509s and they were new when I had the car aligned.  So,
what I am trying to figure out is if this car is prone to eating tires
(as the dealer who did the alignment claims), or if I should try to
get the dealer to help me pay for new tires.  I'm going to
call an independent area garage who does quattro alignments regularly
and get their opinion.   What do all of you think??
