Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Piston ring preference

Which rings do you guys prefer? I'm about to tear my recent acquisition apart and expect to at least re-ring it. Last year, I put Grant rings on new Egge pistons and didn't care for the oil rings having that little plastic bead on them. Lang's sells both Grant and Hastings. Any advise would be appreciated.

I've done many engines with Hasting cast iron rings with no problems. I think Grant is just a little bit cheaper material but is still OK for a T .

Thanks. I did an older search and found that Herm also favors the Hastings.
