Under the decal is the join in the rim, and there is an extra piece that pins the two ends together (they may also be welded). As a result it's slightly heavier. If you really want to do something about it, you will notice that the valve is opposite and put on a heavier valve cap...
Alternatively, stop spending time looking at your wheels. Go and ride your bike instead.
Good. I like it when the solution is 'I am an idiot/obsessive.' This is a solvable problem, at least until the next opportunity to be an idiot/obsessive arrives. Wash, rinse, repeat!
I have a mint set of Judy's on the way and with the new wheels it's gonna be a blast.
Thanks for the input.
