VMR 803 wheels safe and strong for Trackcross?

I want to upgrade my stock 400m wheels and love the look of the VMR 803's but I want to be sure they are strong wheels and safe before I put that much stress on them.

Thanks for the input. Also I did not mean autocross as what is done here in the Northern VA area is not done in parking lots, it actually takes place in the track... hence Trackcross.

Yeah you can't just make up words lol.

If you are driving around cones to beat the clock, it's autocross.

If you are on a track or road course its just "the Track", HPDE or high performance driving event, etc.

On a track but with cones maybe? Like when you were trying to get that top license in Gran Turismo.
