Quality belts are typically made to tight enough tolerances to negate the need for a “matched” set. This has been my experience. Goodyear and Gates as well as a few others can be reliably expected to be very close to each other. Working as a millwright in a recycling facility we had several machine ranging from tens to hundreds of horsepower using multiple belt drives and I never had a problem with goodyear AX, BX and CX belts even with 14 of them carrying 500hp.
