Hoop out of round?

I picked up a new 14" Chad Smith snare last week. Tonight I noticed that an o-ring wasn't sitting flat, and measured the lug-lug diameter and noticed that at one point there's a 1/8" difference (on both batter and res sides). The shell itself looks good, a perfect 14" all the way around.

Is this too much? Is it worth exchanging over?
