alignment on 87 5kcstq

As part of the post-purchase regimen, I had an alignment performed on my 
87 5k after 4 new tires were installed.  As a result, the car has been 
experiencing a noticeable pull to the right.  Shop says the alignment is 
correct, that "its in the tires."  Wait a minute, said I, the tires are 
new and that explanation doesn't make any sense to me.

Q:  Are there any special procedures to be followed when aligning a 
quattro?  The tires I replaced had noticeable wear on the inside 

I don't plan to return to this establishment, but would like to have a 
sampling of opinion from owners who may have encountered this before.
