Lumpy, bumpy, humpy but fat.

In the event that you try a set and they are acceptable, let the rest of us know. I wouldn't buy another set based on my experience unless QC has improved. I believe that certain other listmembers feel the same.

Make sure that you can fit them on a clean built-up, true wheel without glue and, if (when) they are lumpy, return them.
