Went to pep boys today and they said that they don't carry gates belts. They had other brands but not gates. So, my question is: Is there any advantage of using gates belts vs other brands? Let me know. If there is a problem w/ other brands, then i'll just have to look harder for gates.

nothing. i used dayco polycog. few bux a piece more than the gates. there are ribs that runs perpendicular to the standard grooves. supposedly it lets the rubber bend more easily onto the pulleys. so better grip. also it won't develope small cracks when the belt is bent the other way.
