Remember that these mats are not universal fitting. These are custom designed for your exact make, model and year and in most cases cover more area than original equipment manufacturers (OEM).

What is a Custom Floor Mat?

The majority of products from Floor Mat Express are customized for the exact make, year and model of your vehicle. Most mats from the factory (called OEM mats) are of mediocre quality for several reasons. The number on reason is coverage; more coverage equals more material which is more cost for them. The second and most important reason is carpet quality. Our carpet is of high quality (even our minimum quality carpet is better than OEM materials) and wear resistant meant to last for a lifetime of wear and tear. Even though we offer more coverage, Floor Mat Express still takes into consideration the floor controls and other custom option in your vehicle to make sure not to cover them up.

Choosing Between All Weather and Carpet Floor Mats

To make the choice between an all weather mat and a carpet mat can be a tough one. Both categories offer a multitude of products types with different fits, colors and options. Many of our customers that live in environments with changing weather will end up getting a set of each to change out with the seasons. 
However, if you are looking to make a choice between the two you want to consider where you live. Each region in the US and Canada has its own unique weather patterns that call for different material floor mats. If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and slush you will want to consider an all weather floor mat to shield your expensive vehicles carpet from the mud and snow. However, if you live in the south you can feel confident that our quality carpets will do just fine. Of course, our carpet floor mats are still easy to clean and of quality materials to resist the elements as well. 
Floor Mat Express has the floor mats to suit your particular needs. We have gone out of our way to design a custom database to guide you through the product selection process with whichever floor mat you choose.
