Default Import direct vs Gates vs Aisin timing belt kits

Anyone have any experience with Import Direct timing kits from O'reilly's? I've been told Gates went to chinese bearing manufacturer and have not been holding up. Heard good things about Aisin. But just to not have to wait, I went down and bought the Import direct kit from O'reilly's.. first thing I notice, is chinese bearings.. should I return and wait for Aisin? Would appreciate any input. Thanks.

Yes return, Yes to Aisin.

Never same time or money on critical timing components.

You definitely don’t want to be another one of the horror stories we’ve all read about.

Get OEM. Made in Japan.
