Weathertech style floor liners... But not by weathertech

Are there other off brands that have weather tech style floor liners?
I'm looking for front driver+passenger floor liners that fit flush along the floor like weathertech. I remember bumping into random internet forum post of people using off-brands of floor liners that fit very flush like weathertech.

I'm looking for these due to the cost. It doesn't have to be a perfect fit. As long as it works. And even that type of effort is better than those chunky flops of floor mat you get from CAnadian Tire and Walmart!

I like Findway, blends in very nicely with the interior carpet instead of obvious rubber slabs, actually keep mine in all year long now.

The findway mats in that first link I think are great. I've had them in my last two cars. They fit excellent, look better and are far less slippery when wet/icy.
People will believe what they want to believe whether fact or fiction.
'tis most frustrating when they aren't open to see and/or learn which is which.

Other than Weathertech, here's a list I remember off othe top of my head:
Husky - pricey almost like Weathertechs
Maxpider - pricey almost like Weathertechs
U-Guard - don't know much about
Aries - don't know much about
Findway my preference for bang for your buck, but some have complained about aesthetic wear with driver heel area mainly with top layer, which has no impact on protection.
Tuxmat - saw this recently on RFD; don't know much about long term durability

+1 for Findway. Looks good and great cost.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Thanks for the reviews bud. Those are actually great details...

I'll go with findaway. The others might be better. But the cost and styling are there. Who knows. Maybe it'll crack or get scuffed up easier. But in my experience there are some things that are cheap not neccessarily bc of poor quality, but because they're a lesser known brand.

Like that random sriracha from thailand. Yah it doesnt taste the same as huy's famous rooster brand. But it doesnt taste bad either. Actually has more fire to it :lol:

I did some of the same searching a while ago, but then I came to a conclusion that any good weatertech style mats will be roughly in the same price category...and if not, they will be made from cheaper materials with questionable fit.
You also have to consider stuff like warantee and how easy it is to return them in case theres a problem.
So in the end, I just bit the bullet and got the weather techs...they are great mats, well worth the price in my opinion.

I and many others consider the Findway mats a better product unless you need or prefer super deep plastic over a more carpet like mat.

I was going to say this as well.
Anyone know if they actually take requests to make new sets. I submitted an inquiry and they haven't replied.

I believe you can go there in person and have them digitise your print for you as they are in the GTA. Give them a call instead of submitting inquiry or email.
