As long as the description says 17mm hex and for 1/8 scale buggy tires. My buddy bought a set on ebay thought he got a steal of a deal and when they came in they were for 1/10 scale buggy so just make sure you read the description good.

do you have an example? ebay link? most 1/8 buggy rims have a standard offset and hex opening, so should not be a problem. with 1/10, things get a little more tricky...
quality wise, the biggest issue you'll find is the softness of the rim plastic... cheaper wheel sets have a lot of squish to them, and can make the drivability a little unpredictable. if you are buying the tires/wheels just for practice and bashing, you are probably fine.
