If the specs are good on the pistons and you had good compression then I would stay with the current rings.

From what I understand, with Alusil, the cylinder walls break in to the rings as opposed to the ring breaking in to the cylinder like on Nikasils and most other P+C's. I would think putting in new rings would just add unneccesary wear on the Alusil cylinders.

Besides, I don't think you can use the rings you have. Alusil rings are different than other rings. I believe they are a harder material than Nikasil rings.
