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

If the wheel came that way, you should have them replace it. A wheel that's out of round is defective.

However, if it's been on your Jeep awhile, you may have a problem proving that you didn't damage it yourself. Didn't the shop that mounted your tires notice the wheel was out of round?

Of course they did. That video was taken on the wheel balancer at the tire shop during the initial install. That video was taken before the rim was ever even put on my jeep.

That's cool. Then I'd have to say a replacement wheel from AEV is in your future. Good luck.
