Best Winter Floormats

I just bought a set of Michelin floormats from Costco for $37CDN. They look like they're gonna do an awesome job, very deep crevices, and I was able to cut them to fit properly in my Civic without compromising the water retention (the driver's floor has a couple of obsticles like the gas pedal and the trunk/gas lid popper). The front seat frames get in the way of the rear floor mats as well.........no problem, those cut to fit as well without compromising water retention.

My mom actually got me a really nice set of black rubbermaid floormats. They were also easy to trim and fit my intrepid perfectly after cutting some excess. I've been using them ever since. Considering upgrading to the dodge motorsports rubber mats in the future.

I bought these Nifty Catch-all Extreme mats and they are perfect! They are custom formed to the entire floorpan area and catch all the crap. They don't have ridges to savew your pants (I've never really had that problem anyway), but they keep the carpet looking brand new.

Easy to clean to... no need to vacume the carpet, everything stays in the mat when you take it out.

Hey Avenger. yeah that floor pan in the Civic is a bit tricky. I actually ordered a custom fit set of the internet for 68.00 Canadian. (this included the two fronts and one big long rear mat). They have little egg cup like dents to hold the water in the bottom and are pre cut with the tie down holes so they fit exactly like the stock mats.

If the COSCO ones doen't work out I can send give you the website where I got them.

I find any of the "pan" style floor mats are good for winter as long as they can sit fairly flat. You just have to let them freeze overnight and empty them every morning. Clean dry carpets every time!

Cheers

What are these "winter floormats" you all speak of?

(I ask this question as I am prepared to spend the winter not having to feel the temperature go much below 40 here)

Itrain I hate you ....lol.....JK. I got Xtreme FSX floor mates and they are amazing. Deep grooves as well as in the middle there is a section that has foam underneath so it holds extra water and all you do is hang them up in ur basement over night to dry if they are soaked. They have never overflowed like my old pantsaver mats did. $29.99 at Canadian Tire. Black, Grey or Tan.
