FAILED - WK2 Mopar Floormats / Slushmats

Junk... Had them for maybe a year now (~20k miles)... And just noticed there is a hole where the heel of my shoe sits when driving (see picture below). It has definitely worn through from use as the area around the hole is also paper thin now. Glad I caught this before winter sludge hits. I'll be calling someone to complain... Just not sure who yet

For those who have these, take a look and see if it is starting to wear down.

That's not good. What kind of shoes do you normally wear? Just curious if this happens with hard or soft soles -- or doesn't matter? I only use mine during winter months, so I may get 3 years out of mine. Thanks for the heads up. They may be covered under warranty.

Those are garbage mats. Way too thin. Get some real ones like weathertech. I've had a set in my other car for about 5 years and they are as good as new.

Weathertech floor mats are the best.

Thnx for this, good to know. I was seriously thinking about buying a set. I'll stick with my RMW's for now.

Their is a seller on ebay blowing out these mats at a great price... Unfortunate to see them have such little useful life, but at this price it's still a good deal;

Re: FAILED - WK2 Mopar Floormats / Slushmats

It maybe the angle, but that spot looks like a odd place, not where you think your heel would be when using the gas pedal.

I have these mats, my drivers side has seen daily use since December and I don't see any wear.

Bad camera angle. It's right where the heel hits. I also noticed in that area, they reduced the thickness of the tread prob to make it more comfortable for your foot but probably reducing the durability. I had weather techs in my last truck and lasted over 6 years so will prob be going back.

And hence why I splurged and bought the Weathertech Digital fit

Re: FAILED - WK2 Mopar Floormats / Slushmats

Mine were in all winter and into the spring. When l switched them out and washed them, they still looked new. I haven't read any complaints similar to yours. Perhaps you just got a bad one.

5200 miles on my Mopar mats and they look just like the day I bought them. I'm happy with them.

Re: FAILED - WK2 Mopar Floormats / Slushmats

I have 2500 miles on my set and was already noticing that it appears to be wearing. I doubt I will get 10K before it wears through. I have had OEM rubber mats in Chevys, Nissans and Mercedes and all were solid rubber with textures on the top. These Jeep mats are not solid and the texture you see on the top is the same (in negative) on the bottom.

Good to know the Weathertechs are a good option. I may have to order a front set of Weathertechs.
