should i switch my rims?

hey everyone! so i have a 06 lvl 2, with the gunmetal aloca rims, and working at honda, and a trade came in with the brushed aloca rims.. i could probably get them for prety cheap if anything.. just not sure what i wanna do. ill be putting mickey thompson mtz's on pretty soon if it makes a difference. im not sure the exact color name, but its the darker red with the grey bottom. just wondering what you all think? o and also.. should i go white letters in or out? i keep the truck very clean. so theyd always be very white.. just undecided about that too

Keep the gunmetal, it looks really good with the gray accent on the bottom. I'm gonna say white letters out, if kept clean it looks good on a red truck.

Keep what you've got. The gun metal are not near as common as the brushed finish.
