Rear Tire wear

My tires wear out much faster in the middle then the edges for the rears. Is this common? I think I have my tire pressure right.

What inflation pressure do you think is 'right' ?

Many guys over inflate their tires and see this type of wear.

As others have already said, that sounds like over-inflation. 38 psi is considered pretty high for the street already. Go check your tire pressure.
