8mm deviation is a lot, and i would take them back. That said – try to put more of tension on the belts by forcing the motor down with a stick levered under the table, when tigtening the mounting bolts.

Also – check that the pulleys holding the belts are coplanar with a straight edge – thereis no adjustability on your saw, but you can shim the motor mount.

I paid $80 for my 3 belts, since they had some kind of reinforcement.
