Default What piston rings to run with OEM pistons?

I managed to find on more set of 9:1 Beck Arnley pistons, however I want to throw some better moly rings on em.

Any recommendations? It's a .020 overbore FYI.

These pistons will be coupled with some sweet Cat Power rods and won't see over 250-270whp ish.

I think if you call supertech they can sell you rings seperately.

Ya, but with all the mixed opinions of supertech I`m a bit wary. One of the reasons I bought OEM vs. the supertechs (since they are the cheaper forged piston out there).

I'd tell you to use rockauto but don't know if they carry .020 over

there's a bunch...

Rock Products PR400
Sealed Power Part #E551X
Rock Products PR444
Sealed Power Part #E551kc


All those have .020 available. .50mm is the same thing, correct?

Should I get teh Sealed Power `premium` set... $66 aint bad
