    with a "hop" and a dent, probably not worth the shipping.

    If you read carefully the seller says it has slight hop and no dents, cracks, so I thing its worth it if you can alleviate the hop lol

    If you really want to get it, call your local shops and see what it would cost to retension a wheel. That's what it would take to make it run like new. That is of course assuming that it is truely in perfect shape other than being out of round.
