Aegis Swift Cockeyed frame

I have an Aegis Swift frame and the rear wheel has never been centered in the seat stays. Aegis' solution is to replace the dropouts (one side only). They sent 4 different dropouts. None create prefect alignment. We chose the best of the 4, the wheel is centered in the seat stay, the chain stay is off about 1mm. On high speed descents 36+mph the rear wheel has a bad shimmy. Also, there is less than 1mm tires clearance in the seat stay with 23c tire.

Is this frame misaligned? Aegis says no. :mad:
