I am installing a new ASI radiator in my ST 165 and I will be replacing the hoses. Any advice on OEM rubber versus silicone?

I've had my Samco ones for close to 10 years and I don't know how many miles.
They've survived 2 Alltracs and are on their third.

Highly recommended, though I wish I'd gotten the black ones instead of red.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will go with the Samco hoses. Are they available for the ST 165, or do I need to cut to fit the ST 205 hoses?
