Default Water Hoses

I'm installing a RD radiator shortly. Since my hoses are 17 years old, it make sense to replace them. Do you guys recommend just using some new gm hoses? Or do I need something fancier? Car is a C5Z street legal track car. 95% track use

Factory hoses are always a good bet.

I agree. With the factory hoses still being good after 17 years would you want to chance something else? How many aftermarket hoses would last that long? I have the same issue with my 2003 Tahoe. The hoses and exhaust are still the same parts that were delivered on the vehicle in Dec. 2002. I have never had hoses that lasted this long. I keep checking them and they still look good. Dealer says my experience isn't unusual. Must be somebody came up with a magic formula for hoses.
