As an uber driver you can imagine the number of people who are in and out of my vehicle everyday. As you can imagine my interior takes a beating and it has a risk after midnight on the weekends. (Never know what might happen). So I did some research for the most durable seat cover on the market to protect my seats. I came across some from coverking... Now I don't endorse them nor claim they are the best, just wanted to share my experience with you all if you were in the market for seat covers.
They offer custom made seat covers in a bunch of materials. I really liked the ballistic nylon tactical covers and wold have gotten them but didn't feel they were appropriate for an uber driver. I needed good looks and yet extremely durable. So I went with what they called rhino hide. It comes in black, steel (grey), and I believe tan. I chose black to best match the black /grey interior. Coverking claims rhino hide is their most durable seat cover resistant to tears, spills, etc.. unlike coverking's other seat covers it has a 5yr warranty vs. The 3yr that their other covers have.
It took me approximately 2 hours to install them properly and required the removal of all 5 head rests and the rear seat cushion from the car.
I should note these were $555.00 seat covers for the front and back. It cost far more if you order online. I called my order in to see if they had a military discount (they did not) but they had a 15% discount for phone orders. So after $555.00 and 3 weeks lead time I received my seat covers today.
My opinion is as follows.
Pros: they do look really good, almost leather like, they cover the entire seat with no exposed cloth, they do feel extremely durable and I feel that unless someone spills directly onto the rear seat belt buckle my seats will be protected.
Cons: expensive.. like really expensive, the head rest covers are really tight and fasten with velcro that seems really cheap and poorly done (a little more material and a stong zipper would have been great). Just below the seat belt guide in the center of the back rest in the back seat there is a 2in x 2inch opening that serves no purpose. I noticed on youtube someone else had the same comment. Some areas of the cover are very tight and a few areas seem just a little more baggy than I'd have liked for a custom cover.
My overall opinion is that I like them. I do think they look sharp and will serve their purpose. Time will be the ultimate test as I have given nearly 500 rides over 4 months as a driver.
If anyone has specific questions regarding this product feel free to ask and I'll be glad to answer. I'll post pics and if there is something I didn't show that you would like to see let me know and I'll try and get a picture for ya.
