With winter coming (we got our first dusting of snow on Saturday), I figured it's a good time to ask this question.
The mats in my 3rd gen 4runner are wearing out (well, the driver's mat is) and it's time to consider some options.
I've pretty much always "cheaped out' in the past figuring that even if they only lasted a season or so, I'd still get my money's worth. But now I don't mind spending a bit to get something that will last.
I've had bad experiences with plastic/rubber floor mats, though. Biggest "issue" is that they tend to crack or wear through on the driver's side where my left and right heels rest. And the thing about a rubber floor mat is that once it gets a cut, puncture or crack, it's pretty much useless since it will let all that mud, water, snow, etc, onto the floor. For that reason I'm still using the (increasingly worn) factory cloth mats since they seem to be a bit more resistant to wear.
So what's the skinny on the Weather Tech vs. Husky Liner? I see recommendations for both and they are pretty much equally priced. Any differences I should be aware of? Seems I can find either set for about $60 for a set of front mats (not currently planning on doing the rear, at least not yet.)
