Default Oversized Pulley Bore Hole

What would happen if the bore hole of a pulley in a conveyor was significantly larger than the shaft like in the figure below:

I would imagine if the RPM was high, the whole system would shake violently. However, what if the RPM was around 30 RPM. Would the conveyor still function properly? At such low speeds I feel like it would still work, however, I have never seen something like this in the industrial world which is why I am curious.
