Default MAXLITE Fuchs for the track

Anyone using the 15" MAXLITE Fuchs on the track with Hoosiers?

My father has them on his SC with 225f 245r Hoosier r7’s and they have held up well so far to DE’s.

Historically, replica Fuchs wheels haven't had a very good reputation for track use, but I've heard that the Maxilites have held up well for a number of people who have used them on track and for off-road rallying.

Are they cast or forged? Most fuchs replicas are cast and therefore hot garbage on track. In they're cast, get them off the car.

we run the Fikse ZF. It is a 3 piece wheel so similar to a bbs wheel we can replace components rather than the whole wheel.

Holds up to any curb beatings our group can throw at it

I have not purchased the MAXLITEs yet, was thinking MAXLITES or the BRAID wheels as well. BRAID Wheels

I know some Spec 911 racecars are using the Braid wheels, including those built by JWE.

I know of several 911s/944s racecars that have been using them for the last couple years without issue. I believe the Maxilite wheels are the only fakes that are TUV approved(a European standard). I've seen them up close and they are very nice and seem to be reinforce in all the right places. Plus they are used on rally 911s and hold up so they can't be too bad. For the price I think they are a good deal.
