I had a HUGE issue with an old set of belts that were to long and were litrally shredding
Do you have a smaller pulley on the car? If so, did you go down in belt size?
If you don't have a smaller pulley, I'd look at your belt tensioner and see if it is set correctly. To do this, you'd see the "dashes" on top of the tensioner, where the other dash (on the pulley side) should line up.
