    That wave could be scalloping. It is most likely the result of a resonance and traditional wisdom has it that both dampers and arms / struts can be a contributing factor. I've seen it where adjustable damping (compression and rebound) is fitted and someone has stuffed up the spec / adjustment. A few laps around the block with other tyres and wheels could point the way forward. Good luck.

    Tire is cupped: When the tire is scalloped or cupped across the tread it is usually caused by bad shocks or struts. This can also be caused by out of balance tires.

    OK - bottom line from Derrick is all OK front end of car - shaft, suspension etc etc.
    He came back to the tyres as the culprit - next stop, the retailer and see what we can do. After Easter!
    Derrick did say, he's come across a few issues with Pirelli's and would recommend Michelin.

    Put someone elseís wheels on before buying anything. No point in buying something if thereís no guarantee that itís the wheels. And tyres are not cheep theses days.
    First rotate them if possible even put the front to the rear if possible
