Nicked new rims!!

Gah!!!

I finally get my rims and the first thing I see is that it has two nicks on the lip.




Do you think I should return it to get a new one? Will it mess with my tires?

The edge is pretty sharp where the nicks are.

Hey man one of my rims came with a spot JUST like that.. I think it's cause the boxes move and slide around the delivery truck or something.. But anyways from where I bought them they were shipped with insurance so they said send it back and they'll return a brand new one. I didn't take the trouble to ship out and recieve.. too lazy. Those 2 marks look nasty, get what you paid for and tell them to give you another one.

You know what can be the worst feeling of all? Putting a nick on yourself.

Yes, that is what I did yesterday. I was washing my car and I lazily dropped the hose down and the nozzle hit the rim and now there is a nick on it .
