My experience with iForged is that the lips are a little softer than other "brands" in the same price range. Be extra careful when mounting/dismounting tires.

where is the air valve ? If it's in the middle of the barrel, you probably need to remove the wheels to put air in the tires. Also if it's a 3 piece wheel, you'll get air leaks from the silicone sealant going bad and needs to resealed every once in a while.

I never had a problem with my iforged wheels when I had it. Mine had a 5 inch lip in the rear and these were amazing rims.

My HRE's are center mounted stems and you can use an adapter to fill them without removing the wheels.
