I have a brand new Anakee 3. I can take the TKC off the spoked wheel and try the Anakee. If the vibration goes away its the TKC. Any other advise?

Anyone know of someone local who can "true" a spoke wheel if that's the issue?
Tkc's come with that vibration as standard. That's why they cost so much. . The best way the tell is to take the tire off and gauge the out rim with a dial indicator.
