Tire wear

I have a 2018 C-300 Cabrolet with just under 20,000 miles on it, purchased new in 2017. In the middle of a trip I decided to check the rear tires as the fronts were replaced 3,000 mile ago due to a non repairable flat on the "run flats". Decided to replace both fronts and have a 4 wheel alignment performed at the same time.Rears were acceptable at that time.

I found the rears to be like "racing slicks". Went to a dealer and had them replaced. The rear passenger tire was worn so bad that the steel belt was showing on the inside edge.

Just wondering what kind of mileage others are getting with thier "run flats". Dealer seems to think this is normal. Tires are the same as came with the car, Pirelli.
