Now THAT is very good question....

Thanks for the interesting stories - Moral of the story seems to be that just because it might be rare doesn't mean it isn't happening to you.

My memory is fuzzy, but I seem to recall that last time I got tires, the guy mounting them ran the bare rims in the balance machine to verify no big problems before he mounted the tires.
