How complete is the "complete" tuba method? Does it include all of the melodic phrasing exercises and duets that the 350-odd page Goldman/Smith trumpet version does? I have the Mantia/Randall "complete' trombone version and it's a shadow of the trumpet book.
IMHO, it probably wouldn't hurt to learn to read TC and go with the original.
