I used to have belt squeek issues all the time.

Changed tensioners, idler pullies and belts multiple times. It was good for a short time and then the issue returned.

I kept reading people recommending Good Year Gatorback, but I was sceptical for years. Finally, I bought one. No problems since. This was at least 6+ years ago and I'm still on the same belt.

Thanks for the tips, guys.

You can say that the gamble you made on going for Good Year Gatorback was more than worth it. We can never really know a product unless we were able to experience using it firsthand.
