You basically nailed it on the spot. All reverse lip wheels has water trapped in the middle of the barrel making it go out of alignment. This will make your car shake like crazy. If you do a search on HRE issues or IForged issues, this is the main problem. Other than that there is not really other big issues about these rims.
