Unfortunately that company does not have anything for the Forte - neither sedan or Koup.

i find a simple weekly vacuuming/febreeze kept my floors clean in even the most snowy of days. Stock rugs.

shampoo em if you mess em up too bad, its not very hard, i find the stock FORTE emblems on the rugs pretty nice.

I use mats from Walmart and use knife to cut out the extras to fit inside. As long as you don't drop a big snowball inside, the rubber mat holds the water in the middle.

Yes Husky liner offers nothing for any Kia except the SUV's the best fitted option appears to be the Kia rubber mats. Has anyone else noticed the carpet in the cars is pretty low end? I vaccum my car weekly and have noticed that some of the carpet appears to be comming apart.

Yeah, stick with the rubber mats that way you don't wet your carpet.

I personally like this carpet for some reason. I had a Chevy Cobalt before my Koup, and the carpet inside it was really rough and thick, and did not look very clean. I think it's a Korean thing though, because my wife has a Hyundai and her carpet is alike.

You should post pictures of the problem areas though, I'm curious.

That may be fine for the time it's actually snowing, but if it snows a bit and melts a bit, you're gonna start getting mud. My carpets are now in storage until probably May.

I'd like to find a pair of custom molded mats, too. I bought the OEMs when I picked up my car, and was sorely disappointed in them.

I wrap my floor mats in old towels / blankets etc. they absorb the wet and you can just toss them in the washer to clean them up.

I have always just flipped the mats over so the rubber side faces up. Sometimes I had to switch the driver/passenger due to fitment. I find the carpet sides ontop one another provide enough tracion to keep from sliding around and sometimes the mat clips can still be used.

I got the Lloyd Mats and put them in today. They are a perfect fit like described. I was going to add pictures but must be missing something in the settings so I can't add them yet.
