Default GReddy, STi, or Gates Timing Belt

Well is about that time... Asking myself if spending the extra money on a "tuner" timing belt is worth it. I've used gates belts for years and have had absolutely no issues with them. I honestly, as of right now, cannot justify spending the extra cash on one of these expensive "tuner" timing belts. Please correct me if I am wrong here.

I too have used gates for years without any concerns. Gates actually makes many OEM belts so i feel good about their products. Besides i would be willing to bet that companies such as greddy buy the belts from the lowest bidder and stamp their name on it. My vote goes to the cheaper gates brand unless you really want to spend some dough on the STI belt.
