Choosing the right seat covers

Frankly, there is not too much to advise here other than the fact that you should match the product's abilities with what you want. For example, if you want tough and heavy-duty seat covers, then get ones that are designed as such, rather than ones you think look nice.

Then, of course, make sure the seat covers you want will fit before you buy them. Don't be that person.
