MONROEVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA -- I have only 11,000 miles on a Subaru Forrester and replaced one tire and two others had to be repaired. The are factory installed bridgestone tires.

It isn't uncommon for this to happen with lighter and smaller cars - the manufacturer puts on plain Jane cheap-o tires. This is helpful to others so they know what they are getting into.
On the other hand, it is possible you have an alignment issue. It would be helpful to know what model of Bridgestone tire this is.

Yes, it's all relative. Were the tires new? If the car was pre-owned, maybe it's alignment was off? Did you rotate your tires at 5,000 miles? Do you keep them inflated to proper specs? Do you normally drive over rough roads Do you make hard starts/stops? Anything could affect the tires.
I was a bit upset that my factory NEW Pirellis on my truck were going bad at 32,000 miles... but 11,000? Wow... sounds like something is up.
