Have you seen the price of OEM belts for newer sleds? Some are right around$200! I miss the days of $30 brand new belts.
My last belt was $170 which was good for a season,I would gladly pay $109 for a goodyear instead if it was proven durable.

Just did a product search on your link and found that our local Autozone in Mt. Vernon, OH. carries them. I need to get a couple new belts for next season, so I think I may try one out. They did not have any in stock so I will have to order it. I have been using Carlisle belts. I guess all they will need is the numbers off the existing belt to cross-reference?

My belts are only $55...and I still think they are overpriced. [B)]

When someone proves to me that they can hold up to 230+HP, I may give one a try, until then I will continue to use Polaris OEM belts that I can get for around $60-$70.

I grew up thinking Goodyear anything was the cat's meow. I no longer think that way. I once bough a GY serpentine belt for a vehicle and had to return it. Even though it was the right part number, it was too small to slip on. For one, the grooves in the belt weren't deep enough to seat all the way on the ridged pulleys.

Hog let me know when u find a belt that does that because I might not have that much HP but if a belt can hold up to 230+Hp it should hold up for my needs. LOL
