steel belt

After undergoing repeated bending, steel eventually snaps due to the increase in dislocation density which increases the rigidity (like a paperclip that has been bent too many times). Therefore, I'm wondering why steel belts in tires don't routinely snap eventhough they experience large amounts of bending because of the flat contact with the ground.
