Are you sure your spokes are the correct length? I've never seen a wheel that far out with even tension.

http://sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html this old dude will share his wisdom. the rim is fine, you just didn't tension them evenly in the right order. if you really want to get precise, get the Park Tools tension meter from your lbs. once you lace a few wheels, you can tension it straight by eyeball

Hand tight all the way around, make sure it doesnt have major hops or wobbles, then 1/2 turn for a lap around the rim, then 1/4 turn around it until they are tensioned correctly.

In theory that should make a decently true rim.

But sometimes hand tight isn't even.

Youtube is a great resource for truing wheels.

this, execpt instead of hand tight, i use the threads as a gauge for getting them roughly the same point.

Yes.

loosen all the spokes until you can see the threads then get them all even (so like threads just level with the end of the nipple.

Then start at the valve hole and work your way round the wheel adding the same number of turns to every single spoke. Go slowly. and just add a few turns each time. Go round and round the wheel until you start to feel the spokes coming tight. With a good rim and hub it should be within a couple of mm of true by the end.

Good luck.
