Everyday you get in and out of your car repeatedly. Each time, you probably track in tons of dirt, grime, water, snow - you name it. It’s no surprise that your car's original floor starts to look dingy over time. Even the nicest vehicles will show wear and tear over time. When I got my used 2008 GX470, the floor was pretty nasty. Not only stained, it was so worn through it had huge holes in the carpet. The first thing I did was look into custom floor mats for my car to cover the old, worn out ones. It’s a great idea to get some custom rubber mats for cars; in my case, I needed to get carpet floor mats because I wanted to cover actual holes and stains, but you have other options. You can choose all weather black mats to protect from all the elements or choose clear mats if your original floor is looking pretty good or it’s new. Clear floor mats do everything that other floor mats do. They help you keep your car’s original interior clean, not only that, they protect the resale value of your car or truck. It’s much easier to replace a floor mat than replace your car's original carpet. An added bonus of choosing clear, rubber mats is that it allows you to see and enjoy your car’s original interior color. You picked your car for a reason, the interior color most likely played into your (or your partner’s!) decision. A clear floor mat allows you to see and enjoy your car’s original interior color while still protecting it from dirt or spills or wearing out from shoes and boots. So protect your car's interior and prevent future damage by using custom floor mats for trucks or cars.
Clear Floor Mat Material
As mentioned, floor mats come in a variety of colors and materials. If you are looking at clear floor mats, stick with the best and stay away from plastic. Make sure your custom truck floor mats are made of rubber or vinyl to get the best quality and longest lasting product. Also, make sure it is fade resistant. That way, you’ll avoid mats that look yellowed and old over time. AutoAnything offers great products to choose from. Loyd’s clear mats are made of 80mil vinyl. They come with security hooks if needed, to keep the mats in place and have nubs on the underside to further prevent slipping. ExactMats are also made of heavy-duty virgin vinyl; they have nubs on the underside and extra long anchors to keep them in place. Both brands are custom fit so they will cover your truck’s floor better and with more exactness than a universal floor mat. Whichever you choose, you can be confident in the high degree of quality these floor mats have.
A clear, custom floor mat is a fantastic way to preserve your vehicle's original interior so you can enjoy it for years to come. You won’t regret protecting your investment by investing in a clear rubber floor mat.
