Question X5 Advice (Tyres and 4 Wheel Alignment)

17k up on the X5 soon and seems i'm pretty hard on the tyres although uneven wear showing up too. Still above 3mm at low points but won't be long

Any recommendations on replacement tyres?

Anywhere near Glasgow for a 4 wheel alignment?

Uneven wear on the runflats is pretty standard stuff. Bridgestone worse than Dunlops.

High tyre pressures help to resolve uneven wear for me as I'm on just under 20k and all look even.

What tyre pressures are you using?
Are these on 20" wheels?
