Chevrolet Impala Floor Mats and Carpets
The floor mats and covering in your Chevy work hard. No matter what you have on your shoes when you come in, the rugged mats and covering work together to wick moisture away, so you don't end up with wet and cold feet. This tough job requires even tougher parts, so ensuring you select the right covering components for your Chevrolet's floor is important to your comfort while driving.What types of floor mats are available for an Impala?
As an element that's more crucial to the appearance of your car than the safety, the aftermarket parts provide a wide variety of different types of mats for your Impala's floor. Everything from original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, mats to custom, heavy-duty floor liners can be found to match your specific style and needs.
- OEM mats: These mats are cut to perfectly match the contours of your car's foot wells. Carpet mats provide a great look under normal driving conditions whereas all-weather mats provide tough protection against harsh weather conditions.
- Aftermarket generic heavy-duty mats: These mats are cut to fit a wide range of vehicle foot wells and to provide adequate coverage.
- Aftermarket customized all-weather liners: Like OEM mats, these liners are custom-cut to match your Impala's specific shape. The edges of the liners reach up to cover the sides of your foot wells, providing total protection.
If you haven't been using floor mats in your car, or if you bought your Impala pre-owned and the previous owner didn't use floor mats, chances are the constant wear and tear has worn out some areas of the covering. Many people don't realize that you can replace the covering in your car, and you have a few options to do so.
These carpets come pre-molded to match the contours of your vehicle's foot wells, ensuring an easy installation. You can select from a covering that has been removed from another vehicle, or you can purchase a new aftermarket covering. If you buy new, you can select the color and thickness of the covering you purchase, allowing you to customize the look of your vehicle while also getting fresh covering.How do you replace the carpet on a Chevrolet Impala?
