I'm not surprised. I had to have an arch roll.
Did you just roll them or flare them too?

The wings are so soft & malleable, a light flare is hard to avoid.

How much front camber does yr car have.

It might be the camera angle but yr front wheels look more upright than mine did.

I think the issue with mine is that the TS have not been fitted correctly as the wheels still sits forward in the arch rather than being central again

Strange... not sure why they wouldn't give you the values for front camber or castor when they aligned the suspension?

Agreed - Suggested taking car elsewhere as front toe was set 0.25 out as opposed to zero or slight toe-in !!!
