    I very close to pulling the trigger on a set of WO seat covers. I think all black with full charcoal or light gray piping, but want to know about people's experiences with piping durability. I remember reading something about them not holding up so well to constant sliding out of the seat, especially if you have a wallet in your back pocket. If that's the case I may want to rethink my color choices and do no piping.

    FWIW, the Wet Okole's in my 4Runner have held up very well and I've had them close to a year now. The piping seems durable and I'm sure that the covers will last a long time. I like the Wet Okole's enough that I just put my order in for another pair for my Tacoma as well. Very well worth it.

    Mine were in the truck about a year with no issues I saw. Half piping, charcoal (matches interior best btw). (only pulled out to total loss on vehicle).

    I had ordered mine w/o the piping. Three years on my '06 with no problems. Awaiting new covers for my '10. Don't they back them from any defects, tears, ect? Just send them back (flat, not folded or rolled) for repairs.

    do you have any pictures of this? I'm getting a set no matter what, I'm just not sure what color I want. I really like all black and think charcoal piping would set it off nicely, but if there is an issue with the piping wearing out, I need to decide between all black or black/charcoal.

    I've had mine since the last GB and have put about 40,000 miles on my truck since then. I am in and out of my truck A LOT and the only sign of wear is right where my seatbelt comes across the seat to cross my lap. I'm not happy about it but I think it's to be expected as much as I drive. That being said, I would buy another set tomorrow if I needed to. They have saved my original seat fabric TONS of abuse!
