hmm...I like the colour scheme, but I don't really like them now that I see them up close. They look too baggy.

I'm **** about seats just cuz I build them for a living.

Not bad for the price. I've never been a fan of the Iggee covers, I much prefer the Wet Okole's.

Maybe if you hit them with a bit of steam they'll tighten up again. If you have a steaming iron you'll be able to do it, just be careful not to burn the covers.

I build Chrysler seats, including the SRT8 models, and we use a regular household iron on the vinyl and it's perfectly safe provided you don't stay in one place too long.

ohh yeah that'll work nice. if you want to be even more careful squirt some water on the seat first from a spray bottle, and then steam it. Just move back and forth and don't hold it in place for more than 5-6 seconds at a time. Once it's nice and warm, the material will want to relax and you can massage the wrinkles out of it. Since you're in Florida, the heat of the day will help the material to tighten up after it's steamed and massaged. They should come out almost as wrinkle free and tight as the stock seats.

lol what makes you think you aren't doing it right?

Take a spray bottle and spray the area you want to steam. Take the iron and hold it on the steam setting so that it's steaming the entire time you're running it over the area you're trying to smooth out. Once the area you're working on is nice and wet and warm, you'll be able to massage the material.

You're probably not going to get all wrinkles out as it's expected the covers will be slightly baggy as they aren't attached to the seats like the stock covers are, but hopefully by doing this you can make them tighten up a little bit.
