Custom car mats come in 3 basic flavors; carpet, clear vinyl and rubber. To be considered “custom” or “custom fit” a car mat must be designed and manufactured to fit as good as or better than your original factory mats and match, to a high degree of accuracy, the floor pan of your vehicle. You should also be able to select from a palette of different colors, trim options and design.
The manufacturers of car floor mats respond to this challenge using CAD (computer aided design), first used by Cover King over 20 years ago, to match shape and size of the custom car mat to the design/layout of your car. A wide array of rug yarns, rubbers/plastics, colors, computer based embroidery machines and other modern materials technologies give manufacturers the ability to duplicate or even exceed the functionality of your cars original floor mats. Typically a custom designed car or truck mat will not only fit the shape of your vehicle's floor pan but will also provide increased coverage.
With all these fancy capabilities manufacturers put out a dizzying array of different mats. Sometimes to make a decision about a new set of custom car mats all you want to know is whether the new mats will fit or look nice or live up to your expectations.
