The printed specs do not match the picture. The picture shows a steel "one piece" crank with 1/2" pedals. I suspect your bike has 1/2", and there are not very many options for 1/2"... mainly low end plastic, or cheap metal.

I don't see much benefit to replacing the pedals unless there's a problem.

Regardless of size, the left side pedal has left hand "backwards" threads. All pedal threads should have a bit of grease, and "snug" tight is enough.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.
