Are these alignment specs correct?

Took my M3 to a local tire place to have an alignment done. Here is the spec sheet they printed:



Top is before and bottom is after. Are these the correct specs?

The inside of my front passenger side tire is pretty torn up and needs to be replaced. Tire itself still has plenty of tread but the inside wear is making me thing its alignment related (or maybe I just got a bad tire). Thanks for the help.

It looks pretty good, Although the toe on the rear right is still out. That might make the rears wear out unevenly.

Those specs are still not good.

Thrust angle should be 0.00 and your rear toe value on one side is still out of specification. Have them set rear toe as close to one another as possible.

What difference in terms of performance and/or tire wear will I see with the thrust angle slightly off? Is it just being nitpicky asking them to get it exactly to zero or will there be no real world difference.

Rear passenger toe is actually still in spec at .12 according to the printout, just showing up red for some reason.
