Default Fan belts

I'm tired of fan belts that seem fine for a while and then start making a squeaky noise at idling speed. I understand this often arises because the belts commonly supplied are only 10mm wide instead of the correct 11.9mm.

Can anyone confirm that the matched pair of genuine belts from Brookhouse, part number 973537, really are the correct width?

Or from Classicswede?

I ask because Europarts list this item but give the dimension as 10 mm.

Is there any problem buying from, a Volvo dealer? Are their dimensions sometimes wrong? Dealer provided belts are serving me well. The delivered price from say FRF might even be cheaper than third party supplies.

But are they 11.9mm? The power steering belt width is stated as 10.0mm, and I thought that was meant to be the same width as the alternator/fan?
