The car mat on the driver side is usually the mat that experiences the most wear and tear. So it's no wonder that a lot of people are in the market for a car mat for the driver side.
At first you might think just ordering a mat for the driver side is fine but is that really a logical solution? We'll explain more here below.
Wear and tear on just one mat
The mat on the driver side goes through the most. Often you're sitting alone in your car and because of the movements you make while accelerating, braking, and changing gears, the heel of your shoe rubs over the mat quite a bit.
If you eventually end up with holes in the mat, you'll want to replace it as quickly as possible, of course.
But let's say you only buy a mat for the driver side and after half a year you start noticing holes in the passenger side mat. Unlike a driver side mat, you often can't order a passenger side mat on its own.
Now you're stuck buying a whole new set of mats. That's too bad.
Different mats in your car
One thing many people don't think about is the difference in colour that'll occur with just one new mat in your car.
Even if the mats are all exactly the same colour, there will always be a difference. Different types of mats in your car will result in a messy appearance.
You can avoid the risk of your driver side mat experiencing more wear and tear than the rest using the following tips:
