Seen them break in the middle of a turn twice.
One had reinforcement as well.

You would be better off to wait till you could afford after market wheels the stock wheels will still break after welding supports on them. Driver at my track is lucky he's not paralyzed after a stock wheel broke in the middle of a turn, it's not worth the risk.
