I got 60,000 on the OEM tires on my 17 Bolt. Probably could have gone another 10k, but I don't like to push tires to the limit. I neither baby nor abuse tires, I'd say I'm pretty average.
Curious if they said it was uneven ware (indicates misalignment), Cupping (under inflation) or wear around the outside edges (over inflation). You can get a tread wear gauge for a couple of bucks, The the tires also have "wear bars", little raised areas in the tread pattern to show when maximum wear is reached. Duck Duck Go is your friend with this.
We're coming up on 40,000 miles with our 2017 Bolt as well, rotating tires every 5,000, and will probably need them at either 40 or 45K.

To the OP, my Model S is 1,000 lbs heavier than the Bolt and I've needed new tires every 35,000 miles, so there's a high likelihood of some extenuating issue causing such a rapid wearing of your tires.

I just replaced ours at 42,000 miles. Rotated a few times, but probably could have gotten a few thousand more if I had done another rotation on time (fronts were worn out but backs still had some left). I ended up going with the same as OEM. Not sure if the self seal is really necessary. The goop is substantial. I would have been fine going with the Energy Savers without self-seal and just having a plug kit in the car, but it's peace of mind for the family. Was actually hard to find another set of the self seal energy savers, but ended up buying them off discount tire direct. Also looked into the warranty before realizing the tires that shipped with the car weren't covered. Because yeah, was hoping to get 60k out of them. Maybe this time.
