Default What to do with a set of Spin Wheels?

So I have a basically brand new set of Spin Wheels and I am not sure what to do with them. I am in the process of rebuilding my Yo and it still needs allot of work. The bike is ridable but I still need to replace allot including for starters the crankset, the stem, and the seat post.

Should I...

1) Sell the wheels and put the cash towards my rebuild? If so what are they worth?
2) Use them on My Yo?
3) Set them up as second pair for specific rides or as a back up set?
4) Insert your opinion here.

Sell 'em on and get some nice trad wheels for the Yo.
If you want to go authentic, something built by Peter White, who built most of their old wheelsets.

Spins belong on GTs. IMO, they look horrible on just about everything else.

Sell them for everything you can get for 'em and run.

I rode Ringle/Mavic on all of my Fats then and now. There is no right answer for wheelsets.
