Just got my new wheels and I was noticing how awfull the rim welds look. The outside of the rim around the weld looks fine. The braking surface looks fine too. The weld on the inside of the rime looks really bad! It almost looks like you'd need to file it down and smooth it out before mounting a tire.

Any comments?

I have not had any problems with Mavic SUP (welded) rims in this regard, but if you have any rough edges on the inside where the tire bead sits it might be worth sanding them smooth.

but the worst part is that the wheel buzzes and vibrates from that point. Don't know if there's burrs in the welded area or just a bad joint. I'm going to see if I can get it replaced on warranty.
