Those wheels look pretty low end. I'm sure they'll work, but they are going to be heavy, and the bearings are probably not going to be very smooth or last very long. Depending on how well the spokes are tensioned, they may go out of true rather quickly. Finally, I don't have high hopes for the cog or the hub threads.
However, they cost very little, so you have little to loose. At the very least, I would replace those junky locking nuts for some real track nuts, and have a shop give the spoke tension a once-over.
These comments apply to both wheelsets.
Whats your budget?
