Help alfa 166 wobble after tracking

Hi All, I own an Alfa Romeo 166 2.5 v6 auto. I love the car/Alfa’s hence my wife having a 156. Anyway I digress, recently I went to change the brake pads on my 166 and after taking the wheels off I noticed that all four tyres had bad wear on the inside. So I went to ATS (who tried to rip me off, but that’s another story) and got all four replaced with Michelin HP new for 2006 apparently. I know the tracking needed doing but ATS did not do 4 wheel tracking. So I got the tracking done and now at any speed slow or fast with no warning the back end will wobble violently, coming back from goodwood last week I thought I was going to loss it, scary! So I went back to the garage that done the tracking and they had a look and said ATS had not balanced all the tyres so the garage did and after said they took it for a drive and it was 100%. Got the car back and it is still the same, any ideas.

Hi All, thanks for the welcome. I have not kerbed it, before the tracking the car handled like a dream, after the tracking the wobble started and its not consistent ever. Took it back to the garage they said balancing. Got the car back still the same
