Shims. They can use shims to correct camber, which is the tilt of the wheel top to bottom, and caster, which is the the angle created by the steerings pivot point from the front to back of the vehicle.

I presume you are not the one doing the alignment- doesn't the guy/gal with the alignment equipment have an idea on this? maybe you took it to the wrong place? the el cheapo place? If so- try somebody GOOD- believe me,alignment shops vary greatly in the quality of their work- I say all this because if your wheels are that far out of adjustment, you may need to do some suspension work- don't cheap out- that is a really nice and expensive car you have there
