What tyres should I use on my Mazda CX5?

I have 17-inch rims on my 2015 Mazda CX5 and still have a very choppy ride on many A roads and all B class.

First try running the tyres at slightly lower pressures. Try cold pressures of 32PSI all round. Still not good enough, then fit a set of softer compound all weather tyres. Michelin Cross Climate are best, but may not do the size. Next, Goodyear Vector 4-Seasons Gen 2. After that, Nokian Weatherproof, Vredestein Quatrac, Bridgestone A001s, Pirelli Scorpion Verde.

I note your recommendation of Goodyear Vector 4 seasons for a Vectra - does this also apply to a Volkswagen Up - and do the insurance company need to be advised?
I have been running Pirelli P7 runflats (225/55 R17 Y) on my BMW 5 Series for years. Is there now a runflat available which might give a less hard ride?
