Caterpillar 3208TA aftermarket V-belt

I am trying to replace OEM v-belts with aftermarket raw water pump and alternator v-belts for a 1988 Cat 3208TA. Anyone have suggestions for a brand and p/n?

There will be #s on the belts. Take the #s to NAPA. Buy the best they have. If the belts are not Cat also take the manufacturer name.

Thanks for the reply Portage Bay. I have done that. p/n on the Caterpillar belt is 2S-5218 DF. NAPA could not find it, and it is not found on the Cat parts site. No info on a updated p/n. That is why I was asking what others used.
