I will also add that the fitter did not remove the weights before putting the wheel on the balance machine until I mentioned to him that I don't want more adding before he took the old ones off so not sure why he didn't, but again it leads to a lack of confidence in the whole process with them.
In fact I would be better weighing in the lead now to be honest and it would pay for a new tyre..!
Appreciate the offer of looking at the wheel but im in Manchester area so Aberdeen would be a bit of a trek, but thanks anyway.
I did receive a call today actually from the Customer Service guy I spoke to on Friday ,who was asking how the car was after the fitter re-seated them on Monday which is at least appreciated.
He did say try and test it over the next few days and see how they are, and if a problem still, phone him back next week. Not sure where this may lead but if the vibration is still there then no harm in phoning him .
Will keep you guys posted.
Id have the tyres swapped between the 2 rims to see if weight issue moves with the tyre to the other rim.

Yep that's a good idea.
I have to phone the guy back from customers service this week.
He wanted me to see if improved after moving the tyres around the rim and re-seating them.
To be honest though, knowing that the tyre is egg shaped does not fill me with confidence.
When I drive the car , I drive it, and I need to know it wont do something unpredictable so for me they need changing.
