AEV Pintler wheel out of round, anyone had trouble like this before?

Hey guys, I ordered a set of 4 AEV Pintlers and this paticular rim took over 14 ounces of weights just to balance. If you watch this video you can see the rim itself is actually quite out of round. I am going to contact AEV tomorrow, but I was just wondering if this is something I should actually have them fix, or should I just "deal with it"? I would think for how expensive these wheels are, I would be getting a high end product

Dont know if its the video or what, but the machined edge looks like it goes from thick to thin(er)..
Replace that junk. That rim should have never got to you like that. JUNK.

This isn't the first issue AEV has had with their wheels.

Price is outrageous, the styles are ugly, and apparently the quality is poor. Remind me again... why do people buy these?
