Definitely interesting but really is just common sense. One thing not mentioned is warpage or wobble. They didn't show to just jack up the vehicle and spin the wheel to look for side to side or up and down wobble. Something that might not be seen in a static visual inspection. Another thing not mentioned is corrosion. This would affect bead sealing and air retention.
