I have been using the oem but my left heel is wearing a hole in the mat where the clutch is. I will have to get something or at least do something before it hits the carpet. I liked the mats in my '93 accord that had some tuff stuff in the heel area. Some strong carpet of some sort. My heel never wore through after 5 yrs and 150k..

For floor mats, I have the neuspeed floor mats.


For cleaning I spray with simple green and foaming carpet cleaner then let it set for a few minutes. The I use simple green and water and a srcub brush to get the rest. hose off and let dry. I use an old tooth brush for the embroidered lettering. As for the worn foot spot I thinking of attaching a rubber foot reast to diamond plate.

I have the OEM carpet mats but I also have the holes near the clutch and near the brake pedal. It is pretty sad that this has happened...the car only has 23,000 miles on it. I had a 94 civic before with 84k miles and I had the OEM floor mats...They were perfect.

Too clean the mats, I soak them with carpet cleaner, and scrub them with a brush....Then I either go over them with my LIttle Grean Machine(Carpet Cleaner) or I hose them off and let them dry in the sun. (That only works on hot days)

well i have oem ones but during the winter i place some half rubber/half carpet ones on top of the oem ones. my factory ones looks brand new cause theyve never really been used. i bought them about 6 months ago off hondawerx. they didnt come with the car.

in the back i keep the oem in and nothing over them. no ever really rides in the back.
