Send them to this place...they'll check them and fix them if they are messed up. I've dealt with them. They were great.

Do you have a table saw or some other perfectly level surface? If so, you might be able to lay them down and see if they are straight that way.

butt them up against the wall of the garage and the floor laying them flat on the floor, and make a mark where the top of the rotor surface hits the drywall/stud. then spin the rotor and see if it stays lined up. then put it on the bike and with the calipers still off, spin the rim to see if they are true.

may not be absolute precision, but it should work...
