Recessed Lighting

Hey everybody,
I am finishing a basement and I installed a lot of can lights. They are Commercial Electric (I know, I should have gone HALO.) They are rated for IC use, but they are no where near any insulation. Can I use non-IC trim for these lights?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recessed Lighting

There should be a list of acceptable trims and bulbs on a label inside the housing.
