I like the Dayco Poly-Cog belts. I believe these are available at NAPA under the NAPA brand. What I like to have are ones that are not just straight ribs, but have some cuts across them to help the belt wrap better. Goodyear Gatorback are similar.

Depending on your overdrive, belt slip is often caused by the belt stretching to the point that the tensioner can no longer move due to the stops built into it.
