Default Are Powerslide Swell wheels any good at all?

Inline warehouse has them cheap:

I'm looking for very short term, practically throw away wheels. When Duluth rolls around, my current training wheels (MPC Black Magic) will have nearly 1000 summer miles on them. Not good as that means the profile will be pretty flattened. I don't want to transition from flat to pointy wheels on race day and I don't want wear on my race wheels either.

So, I'm looking for some cheap but not completely worthless wheels to use for maybe a month in total. I was going to demote my current race wheels after Grand Forks but now I'm doing New York 100K so I need to preserve them until after that race.

Will the Powerslide Swell wheels do? Any other ideas? I hate to spend money on wheels and then barely use them.

I have found the Mota wheels to work better than the generic PS wheels. The wear isn't real good but the roll is better and pretty close to that of MPC wheels. I have not tried that exact PS wheel, but I have some other generic PS wheels in 125mm and they are pretty slow. The Mota wheels a more money but not crazy.
