Excessive tyre wear on Volkswagen Touareg

The tyres on my Volkswagen Touareg have worn dramatically (4mm in two and a half months). My brake discs and pads also need replacing. Would one be a cause of the other?
Tyre wear tends to accelerate as the tyre wears down but 4mm in 2.5 months is a lot. I can't see how worn brake pads and discs would affect it unless the brakes were dragging. More likely to be an alignment issue or maybe worn suspension bushes.
