I'm riding single track sun rims right now, I'm needing a new front hub/wheel with a 20mm axel and have been looking at just hubs and whole wheels. I can't find much on these particular rims though. The listing I found has this: T.H.E. mountain bike rims downhill dh dirt jump dj - $70 -- Should I jump on these?

No. You should do some research on this dumb design. There's a giant bulge in the middle of those that fills a good part of the volume of the tire. It's designed to prevent pinchflats. In practice it just makes it ridiculously hard to mount tires, weighs a ton, and is just really unnecessary.
