Custom Car Mats – A Buying Guide

 

Ready to Buy Your Tailored Car Mats – What are the options?

Thinking about custom car mats? If you have a car you are proud of but wish to give it an easy upgrade in terms of comfort and appearance, garage owners will tell you one of the simplest and most cost effective ways to make this happen is with a new set of car floor mats. Over time, these show signs of age and wear and can make an otherwise great looking car seem rather old and tired. Whether for function, style or originality, personalising the interior of your car is not easily achieved with store bought products. Your Car Parts allows you to choose the correct set of mats for your car Рperfect fit and complete with fixings Рand personally specify your custom car mats to suit your own vehicle interior.  You can even add personal text and logos!

Our custom car mats buyers checklist

Firstly, you have a range of options to search for your car. You can click on the easily identifiable images of manufacturer badges and then continue using the provided pictures to find your model. Alternatively you can search using your license plate, or a series of drop down options of manufacturer, model and year.

Please note that when entering your licence plate number the image shown of the car mats pattern is a generic image.  If you would like to see the actual pattern of the car mats Рplease navigate the site using manufacturers logos on our car mats page.

Once you have selected the correct set of mats for your vehicle, you can begin customising your mats by choosing your car mat carpet quality.  We offer four choices of carpet quality, PLUS the option of industrial rubber.  Whether you are a restoring classic car, buying mats for your sports car, are buying mats for a lease car,  or in need of something more robust for your work van Рwe have the option to suit.  The colours and prices are clearly visible for each mat type.

One of the most common questions that we are asked is about the carpet quality – so let’s take a look at these categories more closely.

Firstly, let’s look at the carpet weights. ¬†In simple terms this is like the thread count that you see on bed linked and sheets. ¬†The higher the thread count, the higher the quality of the bed sheet!. ¬†In the same way the higher the weight of the carpet – the hight the quality of the carpet. ¬†Higher quality carpet has more stitches per square cm, or uses better quality, heavier material – making it more durable.

The Standard 650g Car Mat

Custom Car MatsThe Standard 650g mat, is a budget ‘loop-weave pile’. ¬†Essentially this means that the carpet is made of thousands of tiny loops and has a rough feel to the touch – a little like a scouring pad. ¬†This is a short pile, robust, rubber-backed, fire retardant, automotive carpet. ¬†All standard quality mats come with a re-enforced heel pad for extra durability. ¬†In summary:

– Short Pile, Loop Weave

The Premium 800g Car Mat

Custom Car Mats Premium 800gThe Premium 800g mat is another short pile carpet. ¬†In contrast to the Standard Quality this is a ‘straight-cut pile’ – which means that the carpet is soft to the touch, and is easy to keep clean, as the dust and debris does not get snagged in the same way as it does in loop-weave. The mats also feature a heel-pad.
