if ordered through website and not through kyle... perhaps maybe there's different grades of quality that perhaps kyle make notes of for ppl buying through him? just a theory... that's all
TBH I think it comes down to communication on both sides. I've known people to make orders for what they think is the same product their friends got, but they get something different simply because they did not verify the exact specifics of what they were ordering. This might not necessarily be the case with those that are saying they got heavier-than-advertised wheels, but it might be considering that many other people are getting their orders exactly to their specifications (ie, the specific type of brake track, width, wheels, hubs, and so forth).
Clear, patient and verified communication is everything.
Also, some people tend to be more 'nervous' about things in life. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I've also found that in life you get what you put into it. Put in some good positivity and confidence in another person, you'll get good results. Approach someone with nervousness and mistrust? You'll get what you think you'll get. This is evident in every aspect of life, watching people in the bicycle-world get nervous about dealing with others across oceans or language barriers is no different than any other instance.

Negativity begets negativity, positivity begets positivity.
