Brera wheel alignment

I kerbed my nearside front wheel quite badly a few months ago and afterwards the car seemed to be pulling slightly to the left, so I decided to get the alignment checked. Before I did, I replaced the tyres, which were both badly worn on the inside edge. With new tyres (Conti Sport Contact 5s) and a new wheel, the steering seemed to be better. Anyway, I had an indie Alfa & Fiat specialist check it this week. The only feedback they gave me was that the alignment wasn't far out, and that wear on the inner edges is normal on the Brera and 159. They did say that the wear on mine was worse than normal though (I took one old tyre to show them. I wasn't given any printout of the settings, and frankly I don't know if any adjustment was even made! I really should have quizzed them more. Should I have been given a printout ? Can adjustment address the inner-wear issue? I don't want my new tyres wrecked in a few k miles.

You should have a printout of the alignment - demand one!

Someone has been feeding you, it is not normal,
Contact these people, they are in West Yorks,
and use the Hunter System, which uses Peter Cambridge's (Ex, Prodrive) settings, which are different from the standard Alfa ones.
