I'll definitely post pics when the opportunity presents itself.
With the tire and wheel on need to take a dial indicator and check to see how true it is going to turn. Personally....I would have sent that hub back and let them eat it....if its off bad on trueness it could wear tires out prematurely, it could cause a vibration, and it could be unsafe. Something to think about. Now you have a screwed up hub and a screwed up wheel IMHO.
