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

That's crazy, I'd have AEV replace it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Ok, thanks for giving me a second opinion. I just wanted to make sure everybody didn't say "just deal with it, thats just part of the production process" or something like that..

Its hard to tell in the video, but I've seen a ton of wheels look like that on my dyno. At first I thought I had bad wheels on my car, but then I saw it on tons of different cars. Its something that you would never notice unless you spin a wheel with the vehicle stationary. But yeah, I'd have AEV replace it, especially if the other wheels look perfect.
