I can think of a couple of possibilities.

Incorrect tire pressure
Not rotating tires
Wore or bent suspension components
Any or all wheels out of alignment
Bent or incorrect wheels or tires installed
Hard cornering
Wheel bearings worn
Brake components worn or hanging up
All Wheel Drive system problems, if equipped

These are some of the common ones.

As mentioned by rednox301 lots of possibilities but the first thing you need to do is tire maintenance like rotate tires regularly and keep proper tire inflation. Doing that keeps tire wear even if no other ussue is happening. If so and still happening have you hit something and need an alignment done or have lost a rim weight and wheel balance is an issue ? Just take it ti a tire shop and show them, they see this stuff all the time.
