I have had the Roadwire since 2008. They have worn very well.

I'm going to give you the dick answer, for the love of god search! There are literally dozens of threads about leather seats here. The standards are katskinz, clazzio, roadwire. There are install threads with great pictures in them, review threads talking about the goods and bads of the various brands, and threads telling you where to buy and who to avoid.

Basically, you have lots of options ranging from $400 to around $800.

I did not ask you to tell me what to buy, I asked if they are good quality and worth the money. That is called an opinion. I am an adult and can make up my mind just fine. Forums are for the exchange of information. I did research and chose to ask the community a question. Thanks

^ hit the nail on the head

In short, my opinion is: Talk to member John Huey http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/member.php?u=51208 and order a set of Katskinz. I've had a very good experience with him, and it's well worth the money. Also, look into a company called Redline leather. That's where you can order matching console cover/shifter boot/door handle pulls.

I ordered a set of Clazzio's from Sparks Toyota and they looked as good as the day I bought them 2 years and 40k miles later. The downside is the wait time to get them shipped, but the installation is easy and the fit and finish were excellent.

Well I have decided on Katzkin.
2 tone combo dark graphite/bone
Toyota Emblem in bone on both front seats
Still trying to decide on stitiching whether a stark contrast or same color as the base which is graphite.
All leather kit, I got my invoice today and will order Monday.

Thanks for all the advice. I will post before, during and after photos. BTW my original cloth upholstery is flawless and the cloth has have been covered since day 5 after buying the truck new. FOR SALE cheap Bone colored. PM if interested.
