Question exhaust manifold gaskets

...can these gaskets (the ones used between the exhaust manifolds and the heads) be re-used? I pulled mine and gaskets do not look deformed at all. Rather not buy new ones if I don't need to.

You'll kick yourself if they do leak when you're done. Put new ones on and be done with it unless you are made of time?

I couldn't find the answer using search, so... What are the best Exhaust manifold gaskets to use? All I've ever heard is not to use the "locking tabs" and I saw someone who used the DII manifold bolts and some spacers that looked like a good solution for making it significantly easier to get to the lower 4.

Opinions are greatly appreciated.

Ive only ever used the stock ones on my RRC. The only thing ill add is to use plenty of copper antiseize on the exhaust bolts.

I am particularly fond of the stainless sandwich type, but I always put on new.
