Tyre wear on outside edge of fronts

I noticed that my two front tyres are wearing down much more on the outside edge than the rest of the tyre. The car drives fine. Is it a feature of wide, low profile run flat tyres, or is my alignment out? I use the recommended pressure of 32 all round. If the tyre was under-inflated you would surely expect excessive wear on both edges not just the outside.

Have the geometry checked just to make sure all is aligned. Ideally a proper 4 wheel alignment.

If you find somewhere doing all 4 wheels ask them what they are aligning the wheels too. If they say the rears then walk away as the wheels should be aligned to the chassis not each other.

Not sure if this will cover Ireland.
