Difference Between Rims

What's the difference between motocross rims and road bike rims? Are flanged much better than non-flanged? I saw this ad on Craigslist and was wondering if they're worth looking in to.

i think other than sizes, they are the same. i know a bunch of people who have various dirtbike rims laced to street racebikes. now there could be pitch issues and stuff like that but i dont know. as far as what they are, they are the same.

my guess would be if you can find a wm2 18", its be the same as a street bike, but possible with a different drilling depending on hub size.
