This is a reputable shop and they know what they are doing so to me it seems like a defect but when I called two different dealers they said the wheels would need to be remounted for them to do a warranty claim and that just bringing them by in a truck for them to inspect isn't acceptable. What a PITA.... sorry venting.
Not the first time I've seen this happen although it hasn't happened to myself.
