Avant Garde M310's - Small problem

Purchased these wheels from a board vendor. Wheels came exactly when promised and dealing with this vendor was great however there are some imperfections in the wheel finish and damage to two of them.

Would you send it back or just ignore it?

Mind you they came yesterday and i only opened one so far so ill see if any of the other ones are similar.

Edit: Opened the rest and they are worse..

Would you send it back or just ignore it? You couldnt see it from more than 2 feet away but I am a bit anal

It's not unreasonable to return an item for a defect, regardless of how small it is. This is especially so with an item like a wheel which is purchased primarily for aesthetic value. If you're not happy with the defect and it's something that will gnaw at you over time, send it back. Be decent with the vendor and they will likely take care of you. At the end of the day, their inspection process missed the defect, not once, but twice (before and after clear coat). They need to correct the problem. Good luck!
