The only scenario that I can think of where the strength of the foot could make a difference is when regularly pivoting the bike on the side stand. This foot isn't exactly huge in comparison to the original so should be okay... and even if it does curl up a bit should still be okay on soft ground.

FWIW, mines a 65x4mm disk and the original foot was completely removed so that its replacement could be welded directly to the leg. A ball was welded to the end of the foot so that it wasn't tearing up the workshop floor every time the bike needed to be pivoted on the stand.
Nice!
