Asking why you should get seat covers for your rig is like wondering why regular dental checkups are a good idea. You may be able to skate by without them for a while. But in the end, the damage you’ve sustained is that much harder to correct. Instead of a filling, now you get to suffer through a root canal. Luckily, preserving your car seats is totally pain-free and a heck of a lot easier than even the simplest act of oral hygiene: brushing your teeth.
The Benefits of Seat Covers
Truck seat covers are available for all seats and rows in most vehicles, and they come in a wide array of unique styles and colors, including neoprene seat covers, camo seat covers and Hawaiian seat covers. And, for those looking for a little added warmth in the winter months, sheepskin seat covers are manufactured from a 1-inch layer of thick wool, delivering style and warmth in even the coldest temperatures.
Best of all, most aftermarket seat covers slip on and off with no tools required and come treated with stain repellents for complete spill protection against water and any other harmful liquids. When they become soiled, a quick run through any standard washing machine restores them to like-new.
What Type of Seat Cover is Best for You?
Like most quality aftermarket products, seat covers are designed for your unique make, model and year to ensure a tight, seamless fit. Tacoma seat covers, Toyota Tundra seat covers, and seat covers for the Chevy S10 protect your stock upholstery and make an excellent and affordable investment, preserving your resale value while injecting some personalized style into your interior.
Crafted from quality OEM fabrics and featuring a soft foam backing, aftermarket covers provide a combination of comfort and lasting durability. Many cover – like leather seat covers – also allow you to upgrade your interior, achieving a high-end appearance without the high-end price. Similar to the factory upgrades offered through your dealer, leather seat covers provide the luxurious appearance and feel of leather at a fraction of the cost of an actual leather interior, leading many drivers to opt for standard cloth upholstery when they purchase their vehicle and upgrade with aftermarket car seat covers afterward.
Selecting the Right Seat Covers for Your Ride
But leather isn't for everybody, as those with pets or kids will tell you. That’s why covers made from microfiber and endura provide the perfect solution, delivering a combination of style and enhanced durability. Microfiber, like that found in many dog seat covers, is fade-resistant and blocks stains, making it ideal for pet owners looking to protect their interior (and resale value). Similar to microfiber, endura also provides an impenetrable layer that stops spills from leaking through and actually prevents pet hair from accumulating!
