General technical question on belts...

This is a pretty general question but it relates to performance and supercharger drive belts and pulleys.

So, is there a minimum radius that drive belts are supposed to turn around? I'm talking about regular 6 and 8 rib accessory drive belts now. Most pulleys I see are about 3" or larger with the smallest being the alternator.

I'm just wondering if a 2" pulley is too small of a radius and will stress the belt.

Thanks!
