Pulling to the left

Please bear with me..
I had to return my used 200 "04" recently purchased,as it was pulling to the left when driving,i had previously taken it for tracking locally,
but i was advised that the tracking could not be completed as there were no "adjuster spacers" on the rear.

Having returned it for these to be fitted by the garage who sold me the car,i was told the following..

""We have fitted the spacer bolts and sent it for tracking,mercedes are known for pulling to the left,with directional tyres..the chap who did tracking tried switching the tyres over and the car pulled to the right,so whilst it still pulls to the left it is in fact within the specs required""

I have been given a data sheet showing camber, toe,ect

I have to admit the pulling is less noticable,but still there.
Your comment are appreciated,

Would "normal tyres "stop the pulling?
