Default Expert uneven tyre wear

I have a 2012 Expert. It has now done about 110,000 miles. I am on my third set of rear tyres (Continental) because they are wearing unevenly, developing flat spots. As the wear gets worse, the noise generated by them increases.
Tyre pressures are correct.
I thought maybe it was because I do a lot of motorway driving but, funnily enough, the front wheels do exactly the same journey and they don't have uneven wear.
The van is never loaded anywhere near its payload.
The wheels are balanced when fitted. The brakes aren't binding.
I don't understand why they wear like this.
Any suggestions.
Thanks

I will try a different make this time but thought Continental would be as good as it gets. As I say, the fronts don't have the same problem.

What condition are the rear shocks in?

Well, good question.
I would notice if they were really knackered and there is nothing to suggest they are worn and this has been going on from new. Maybe I'm expecting too much from the tyres. I suppose they are giving around 30,000 miles.
I wouldn't mind if they just wore out quickly, I just find it annoying when there is still plenty of tread generally.

You probably wouldn't notice if they were gone to be honest and at 110k I would get them checked out at least.

Had mine off this weekend on car that just looked old but no leaks as I had a knocking noise and one had hardly any resistance.

Won't do any harm to have them checked. Thanks

Its not the rear wheels locking because the load adjusting valve is set to high? On trucks I used to drive if they were unladen the rear wheels would often lock because of a lack of sensitivity in the valve. If your van has ABS this should prevent this problem.

It does have ABS. I always have a load in the back but nothing approaching its payload (but heavier than flowers). There is no sign of locking up even in the wet.Thanks for the suggestion though.
Luckily the company pays for the tyres but I would still like to get to the bottom of it.

A 2012 car/van wont have the load valve as it uses the abs sensors to detect any locking up due to any extra weight
