Runflattering observation

I have been having a little stand off with my local dealer and BMW GB over the uneven wear on the front passenger runflat on my 118d Sport. Having unscientifically walked around Tesco and Sainsburys car park looking at other 1 Series, and spoken to my local Kwik Fit, I notice most cars are showing wear on the outer edge. Mine is going smooth. But BMW says there is nothing wrong (tracking/pressures ok). I e-mailed Bridgestone, but haven’t had a reply. Have you had any similar queries, and can you offer any advice?

As soon as this starts to happen, swap the fronts side to side. Once a wear pattern sets up, wear increases exponentially.
