weathertech vs husky vs oedro

Selecting floor liners is pretty close to selecting phone cases, right? Well, maybe not exactly.

Floor liners will cost you close to 40 more times the cost of phone cases.

And for that kind of money, it's only wise to be picky.

You are probably thinking of either Husky or WeatherTech floor liners.

But who takes the crown between the two brands and more so are they the only two brands worth a comparison?

Well, we will let you arrive at your own answers to these questions. We have created a comprehensive review of 3 brands which we believe offer the best floor liners for F150.

Why did we pick a novice brand to join the race?

The race among our proposed three brands may seem unfair based on brand strength.

Husky and WeatherTech are vastly known brands in the floor liners market, OEDRO, on the other hand, not so much. You'd expect this to be Tyson and Ali boxing a freshman.

But this match is not simply about two top brands against an unknown newbie. The outcome, based on various standards may shock you. Read on and find out.

Here is why we think the newbie might just take the crown.

Floor liners are typically rated based on the factors below. To know more about a specific factor click on the question mark (?) adjacent to the factor.


  Features WeatherTech Husky OEDRO
Product Qualities Perfect fit ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★★★
Non-slippery? ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★★★

Durability? ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★★★
Easy installation? ★★★★★ ★★★★★ ★★★★★
Multiple choices? ★★★★★ ★★★☆☆ ★★☆☆☆
Extra Value Price ★★★★☆ ★★★★☆ ★★★★★

From the above chart, here are some simple conclusions to draw:

WeatherTech has the lowest ratings among the three brands when it comes to cost, offering warranties and free shipping.

Husky though it has good ratings for offering free shipping; it has low scores when it comes to cost, offering multiple choices and warranties.

OEDRO has excellent ratings on its costs and free shipping hence it offers more affordable floor liners than WeatherTech and Husky.

However, being a new player in the floor liners market OEDRO's brand awareness and multiple choice of products are limited.


Factors to consider when purchasing floor liners

perfect fit

- Perfect fit

This is the most critical factor to consider when purchasing floor mats for your car; we rank it at #1.

Not a perfect fit for your car model? Then you just wasted your money on floor liners that are now useless.

Our top 3 brands WeatherTech, Husky, and OEDRO, have done a great job at ensuring that every floor liner your purchase will be a perfect fit for your car model.

The three brands all sell customized floor liners which are specially designed with laser scanning technology to ensures they fit perfectly in all interior car surfaces.

non slippery

- Non-Slippery.

This feature is a must-have for driving safety; hence, it ranks at #2.

A slippery floor liner can be a safety hazard when driving; it easily gets under your pedal when driving and causes driving issues.

Fortunately, floor liners by WeatherTech, Husky, and OEDRO are all designed with round fasteners to fix the mats on your car floor.

mess free

- Mess-Free

This is why floor liners were invented in the first place.

The three brands perfectly achieved this goal in the designs of their floor liners.

The floor liners easily trap fluids and dirt channeling them into their reservoirs thus ensuring your car floor is always clean.

Why do most car owners opt to invest in floor liner sets to protect their car floors from messes? Because a clean car is healthier and has a higher resale value. Get yourself floor liners and avoid hard stains and messes.

easy to clean

- Easy to Clean

Fact: Cleaning a floor liner is easier than cleaning a car's floor.

Our three brands have made cleaning floor liners even easier by adding channels and ditches on to their designs. You just need to use tap water to flush out the dirt.

tpe durable

- Durability

WeatherTech, Husky and OEDRO all manufacture their floor liners using advanced Thermoplastic Elastomer material (TPE) not only making them durable but also environment-friendly.

TPE stands out for being 100% recyclable, virtually odorless and containing zero lead, cadmium or harmful PVCs.

easy-installation

- Easy installation

All the floor liners from our three brands:

Have quick fastener for fixing them firmly onto the car floor.

Do not require any special tools to install them.

Installation is intuitive, only taking a maximum of 10 minutes to complete.

multiple choices

- Multiple choices

This is where the differences start to show.

Among the three brands WeatherTech takes the crown for developing custom-fit floor liners, having developed for over 1,000 different car models; this is three times more compared to Husky.

Compared to WeatherTech and Husky, OEDRO has custom-fit floor liners for only four car models: F150, Wrangler, Ram and Silverado.

If you are only interested in floor liners for F150 then, WeatherTech is the best at it.

weathertech purchase process To choose floor mats for your F150 on the WeatherTech official website, you first need to select F150 as your car model; then select your cab style, followed by floor type and the seating configuration of the 1st row.

You also have several set and color options to choose from.

husky purchase process On the Husky's official website, however, you only have the options of car model and cab styles for the F150.

That, and the color choices.

OEDRO offers the least flexible of the three brands.

On OEDRO's website, you will only get floor liners for 2015 - 2018 F150 super crew cab under F150 auto parts.

The floor liners offered only work with carpet floor, bucket seat configurations and are just in black.

OEDRO is, however, working to develop more floor liners fit for all F150 models. It is just a matter of time.

Deciding to focus on F150 cars only is not such a bad thing.

OEDRO can guarantee the F150 car owners exclusive servicing of the most suitable floor liners for their cars.

- Price

The cost of a complete set of floor liners, i.e., front and rear cab floor liners is definitely higher than that of a set of front floor liners only.

To demonstrate this, let us use floor liners of a complete set of a super crew cab, carpet floor and a 1st-row bucket seating configuration as an example.

WeatherTech offers two prices for the F150 floor liners. weathertech liners prices

Husky offers three prices for the same:

Front floor liners and rear floor liners are sold separately.

husky x-act price You pay $224.9 and $206.9 for their X-ACT liners (this difference is due to the two different rear floor liners offered).

husky weatherbeater price Husky's complete set of WEATHERBEATER floor liners go for $187.1

Being $12.8 cheaper, it's a serious competitor with WeatherTech's products in the same series.

oedro floor liners OEDRO on the other hand prices a complete set of floor liners at $145.99, this is 78% of Husky and 73% of WeatherTech's prices.

That means you pay 22% or 27% more when you purchase from either Husky or WeatherTech.

OEDRO still offers more substantial discounts on big days such as Amazon Prime day, scoring even more on savings.

So, if OEDRO offers such amazing prices for their products, do they compromise on build quality, design features, and durability?

No!
OEDRO floor liners are perfectly centered around, price, service, user experience, and details.

How then, are they so much cheaper?

Well, because of less brand awareness.

First, it is no secret that when it comes to factory price, custom fit floor liners are more expensive compared to universal sizes.

Secondly, other considerations are made including costs incurred for detailed designs, brand promotion (inclusive of Amazon commissions and ads) and services offered (inclusive of free shipping and warranty).

factors of price
This is why their profits are cut to the bare minimum.

OEDRO is insistent on a low price strategy due to their low brand awareness.

In these early business stages, they need to attract more customers with better prices for products to grow their market shares.

Then gradually increase their prices to increase revenue.

This means now is the best time ever to invest in OEDRO floor liners, before they begin upselling.

warranty

- Warranty

All the three brands offer lifetime-warranties on their products. But…

Despite the lifespan of a warranty, the coverage of the warranty is of more importance.

Based on the research that we carried out irrespective of the brand, almost all floor liners may develop the following issues after two years of use:

In hot areas, some floor liners tend to curl upwards around the edges.

Some floor liners end up deforming, creating gaps between the floor liners and the car's interior surfaces.

Such problems can cause irritating noises while driving and in worse scenarios, the floor liners can shift and get under the pedals becoming a driving hazard.

These kinds of problems are not exclusive to a particular brand; WeatherTech, Husky, and OEDRO all suffer from possible degradation.

So, they should definitely be covered by the warranty as they affect user experience and product usability.

Certain products' warranty guarantee replacement of the defective product with a brand new one, at no expense to the consumer.

Others offer an extended discount on replacement purchases.

While others offer you a percentage refund, say 50%, and let you keep the defective product.

Whatever the case, the warranty cover should ensure that you get the value of the product you purchased.

Back to our three brands, Husky's warranty excludes the problems mentioned above as everyday wear causes them.

WeatherTech failed to clarify how they address warranty issues related to such problems.

OEDRO however, promises to include such everyday wear problems in the floor liners' warranty.

oedro warranty
They also guarantee that their liners are manufactured to last as long as your car's lifetime.

If you are looking for the best guarantee in your floor liners investment, you had a better look out for such details before making a purchase.

Whether you settle for WeatherTech, Husky or any other brand of floor liners, ensure they offer a similar all-around covered warranty.

brand awareness

- Brand awareness

Both WeatherTech and Husky have been in the floor liner market since 1988 acquiring an unbeatable brand impression in comparison to their competitors.

Both brands promote themselves through commercials online and offline as well as boasting of die-hard clientele who market their brands to potential buyers through referrals.

Other than making purchasing their floor liners possible on their official websites, purchases can be made on Amazon, eBay and almost all auto parts retail stores online and offline.

Compared to WeatherTech and Husky, OEDRO still has a long way to go to match the two.

OEDRO products are currently only available on Amazon and eBay.

- Free shipping

WeatherTech has no free shipping offers. However, using their bundling options you can save on some of the shipping and handling costs.

Both Husky and OEDRO offer free shipping that can save you up to $20 or more dependent on the mileage.

who makes best liners

Which brand takes the crown?

If brand awareness speaks highly to you, then your better option lies between WeatherTech and Husky.

However, if you are keen on the best value for money, then OEDRO is your best bet.
