Default Swap my OEM Sport wheels for TRD Pro?

Any advantages to doing this?
4yh gen Sport wheels are 7.5" wide, TRD Pro are 7".
TRD Pro seem to sit out 0.5" or so more than Sport wheels, so I guess a little wider track, and the TRD Pro wheels are lighter.

A friend offered a set to me but I'm not seeing any real advantage to swapping them out. Am I missing anything here in terms of practicality and upgrade?

You will have a small amount more of tire bulge with the narrower rim. A little less chance of curb rash on the wheel. Aesthetics how do you like the look?

Yeah, that's my issue...I don't care either way about the looks, I'm more interested in a notable uptick in practicality and I'm having a hard time seeing that. If it's not there then I want to save myself the hassle and $ of switching over. to them That said, my friend (a lifelong friend) gave me the choice of using them (free) or selling them and we split the $. If I sell them I'd likely just give him all the $ as the guy's sported me so many things over the decades.
