I brought my mini in for an alignment due to the back tires cupping. The car did not pull. It tracked straight. They put two new tires in the front . After the alignment it now pulls pretty noticeably to the right. I took it back and they said that because the tires are new they are gripping the road crown heavily and causing it to pull. When Iím driving in the left lane it tracks somewhat straight but in the right lane it goes to the right. They said the alignment is fine. Iím pretty sure they did not recheck it. They just parked it in the back for the day and gave me some bs. They couldnít give me an updated print out of the specs. Here are the alignment specs. What do you guys think.

The rear camber being off a half-degree from side to side is not exactly optimal. The left being more negative than the right could push the car to the right, but I don't know how strong it would be.
