Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
I would be very careful with a deal that sounds too good to be true. Take a look at what happend to this carbon wheel in another question: Carbon Wheel Heat Bending
I wouldn't buy from a company I've never heard of before and will never hear from again (like when the wheel deforms from the heat of braking and I'm trying to get a refund). Even the tagline on that website ("Welcome to carbonbikeoem.com , enjoy the great savings now!") is a red flag to me. It suggests that the only point of their products is that they're cheap. The generally poor grammar of that website also suggests that it's not a serious company, but just someone who can cheaply produce things from something resembling carbon fiber.
It would be much better to get a decent set of aluminum wheels, then you don't have to worry about how long they last before they snap. For $85, you can get a Mavic XC 717 Disc rim that weighs 395 grams. Mavic is a well-known manufacturer and you are guaranteed that this is a good product. It weighs 35 grams more than those carbon rims. Who cares about 35 grams ?
