    which floor mats are better? i heard the weather tech and huskies are the top of the line right?

    i don't have any floor mats currently (just bought a gold/tan 2007 from a dealer) but came with none.

    i'm looking for a few on ebay, they sell a few other cheaper ones but i wanted your opinions!!

    thanks!

    from the ebay pictures, the weather techs look like they are of better quality.

    another major concern is fitment and whether or not they will slip and slide... i read one post that the weathertechs slip and slide a little bit much, yet the huskies don't...

    I believe that WeatherTech has the holes in the driver's mat where the anchors for factory carpeted mats attach, just in front of the seat. You may need to buy the anchors from Toyota, or they may come with the mats. This will keep the driver's mat in place, but the passenger side and rear mats can move around a bit.

    Buy the Weather tech mats, and get the Weather tech cargo area mat as well. You won't regret the cargo area mat.

    I just bought the grey weather tech front and rear mats. Also got the cargo. I just go them a week ago and couldnt be any happier. They do move around a little bit both driver and passenger front mats, maybe around a 1/4 inch(Its prob less than 1/4 inch i havent measured but its not noticible). The back and cargo mats fit like a glove. I purchase mine through juiced hybrid on amazon. You can also order through there website juicedhybrid.com. Very good customer service and quick shipping. Highly recommend!

    +1 on Weathertech floor and cargo liner. Still holding up perfectly at 85k miles / 4 year mark.

    they both look great, huskies and also the weathertech floor liners (not the all weather floor mats right we're talking about?

    also although they would seem to look and fit a pick up truck great, would it suit a prius? or would a carpeted floor mat be a nicer fit?
    because the car itself is almost border line luxurious and to step into a car like this to a hard rubber floor liner/mat, does it throw anyone off or is it that nice of an upgrade (i hope so it's kinda $$$)??

    I went with the Husky liners and like them. I remember the Weathertechs not having much of a lip by the gas door release and letting water out there. Huskys have a huge lip all the way around, but no hole to attach the hook and keep it from sliding up to the firewall. I do have to pull the drivers mat back every few weeks or so.

    Purchased the Weather Tech mats from this site and couldn't be happier.:D
    The fit like a glove with Zero movment.
    Plus they come with the mounting clips for the drivers side.
