    Radiator hoses... which brand?

    What brand of radiator hoses do you like? Prices vary significantly from $20-130 a set. All I see is silicone.

    I usually buy CV4. They make a great hose but they're also the most expensive. However, I did buy some hoses on ebay recently, made in China. CV4 doesn't make them for my Tecate 3 (see pic). Anyway, they turned out to be great quality and fitment.

    I ended up getting the GPI Racing hoses for $20. I did have to trim two of them since they were just a little too long. Less than 1 inch each. No leaks so far and I don't expect any to develop any time soon.

    The GPI hoses worked well for me.
