would these work well? I was thinking of attaching them to motorcycle tie-downs and securing it to a beam in the garage. Is it necessary to have spring swivels? Thanks.

You might try a pair and give them a shot. I've tried a few different playground variety rings and found them to be too small for my hands. Gymnastics rings have a total diameter of about 8", but the playground ones are generally 6" or less. As a result, your hand sort of gets pinched. Also, with the aluminum, I would recommend covering them with tennis racket grip tape, because it can get sort of slippery.
I wouldn't worry about having spring swivels unless you are planning to do more advanced ballistic gymnastics skills like inlocates and dislocates (giant swings).

Thanks for the info Tyler. I think i'll order them.

Do you know of any cheap alternatives if they are to small?
