Alternator belt lasts 2 months

My car is shredding the inside (farthest from the fan) part of my alternator belts. I had the water pump pulley replaced (cost way too much) and its still doing it. Alternator pulley perhaps?

The alternators from a 91 325is and it appears to be bushingless. I got it for 50 dollars and rebuilding my old one is $150 should I just swap the pulleys?

Any other ideas?

Im out of the cruise tomarrow no sense in putting extra wear on the belt

Check to see if you need new alternator mount bushings, it might be messing up your belt alignment
