Does anyone have experience with the goodyear hoses?

I am installing a new radiator and water pump. In the process I plan on installing new hoses so I have one less thing to worry about. I have read about them on various retail websites, but I have never talked with anyone about whether these things are worth the price.

My stockers have 135,000 on them....I'm sure ANYTHING new is just fine.

I'm sure they are just fine too, but they cost $90 a set, compared to about $25 for the same hoses from a parts house. I was just was curious what would be gained by spending the extra cash. My car is the same as yours, 125 tho on the od with the original hoses, I just figure I might as well replace them since I am doing this other work.

I don't see any other benefit than getting a hose but in color. I don't want to pay $90 for a hose that cost 3 times less at a parts store. Have you looked at the chrome piece that replaces the hose. I've seen it on several foxes.
