Does anyone have the Mr Mike's seats in cloth? If so could you post closeup pics of the cloth itself and what do you think of the cloth seat?

After having owned lots of used and new cars with leather seats, I hate them. No matter the care, if you use the car, they go to hell in no time. I used best leather conditioners, kept them spotless in my 04 Magnum. It had 20,000 when I sold it and drivers side had cracks starting to appear all over. If I have a choice, cloth seats are the only way to go for me. My old New Yorker (40 years old) had brocade cloth and they looked nearly like new except for one seam. An upholstery shop could have fixed it in 1/2 hour for $25. Ive had a few sets of Mr Mikes, and they were def quality stuff ...even though they were leather

I gotta agree with Roger this time. No leather for me.

I didn't know Mr. Mikes was making cloth seats but its awesome to have him as a source if I ever need new ones.

I am just the opposite... I love leather, easy to clean, doesn't trap dirt/dust/fast food.

What about leatherette? How do they hold up? I might do the cloth / leatherette combo like I saw somewhere on Mr. Mikes website. Leatherette on the sides to hopefully elminate the "classic tear" and cloth in the middle so I stay cool.

Nice looking seats!

If you have kids, especially young ones you'll start to really appreciate leather for it's ability to repel milk and other unwanted bodily fluids.

That being said, not all leather is the same. My Excursion has leather seats... the quality is slightly less as you go back from the front to row 2 to row 3. I've got 100K on it and the only marginal spot is due to the prior owner and even then it's just scuffed. Some of the immitation stuff on the arm rest, however, has cracked. Our Honda Odyssey also has great leather. However a Mazda 626 I sat in years ago sucked!

I'm still debating but suspect I'll go leather when I do my seats.

About a third what the leather seats cost, and half the cost of leatherette!! (around $350 give or take options, + shipping etc.)

I had all the leather tore out of my Corvette convertible because of all the cracking I knew off the bat no one would ever buy a vette without 'leather' so I had them done in the same red in Naugahyde. That stuff will not wear out and looks almost exactly like leather without being cheap vinyl. I had naugahyde in my Ferrari kit too. I put 100K on it in less than 7 years and they looked exactly the same as the day they were put in. If i cant get cloth, I get naugahyde everytime. Ill never have leather given any choice. My Sebring has leather, but its roll and pleated suede and its ok especially for a convertible.
