I assume the item won't because maxed out implies no more, but I am not sure if that only applies to leveling. I will save these items if they do in fact increase a maxed stat.

Stat up items will not have an effect if the stat is already maxed. Each class has their own stat maximums, and these items can't be used to get around that. If you're only a single point away from the maximum, the stat up item will only give you one point.

What you CAN do, though, is use skills. Skills bypass the normal limit by adding to the base stats, outside of the character's stats. The All Stats+2 skill, in particular, will make your characters much stronger.

Don't forget to accept the answer if you think it properly answers your question. – Brian Apr 8 '13 at 18:57

No. A unit cannot use a permanent stat-increasing item if the corresponding stat is capped (the Use command for such an item is disabled):

Tiki cannot use a Speedwing because her Speed (and several other stats) is capped

Note, however, that items that temporarily boost stats (such as tonics) can be used; these are effective for the duration of the next battle.
