Those images suggest that at least one rim is not a great one to use on a "rider" bike.
Deformation at a spoke eyelet, and another that looks like a crack is starting.

I noticed the eyelet, and was hoping that if it was possible it might be addressed somehow. I hadnít noticed the appearance of a crack forming however. I see it now in the photo but will have to inspect it closer once I get home.

I picked them out of a dingy, and dimly lit garage last night. Thought I had inspected them closely enough but unfortunately that means might not be the case.
