If you bought a hoop that came dented, would you return it?
I bought a Velocity B43 hoop from Universal cycles and it came with a slight bend in the edge. My issue is that I've already laced, tensioned, and trued the wheel, so it'll be a giant pain in the ass/waste of time to have to tear it down, re-package, re-ship, and then start all over again with a new hoop. The damage is subtle, but there; when you have the wheel spinning you can easily spot the deviation.
The edge didn't start becoming obvious until I had the hoop in a decent round. It's probably repairable and doesn't bother me that much, but that may be because I don't feeling like going through the whole process of tearing down and rebuilding.
What would you do?
