Default CoverKing Seat Covers

Last weekend I installed the CoverKing seat covers on my 91. Easy install and fit is good. Will re-tighten the covers in another week, but so far with multiple entry and exits I'm very happy with fit.

The key to these C4 seat covers is to see how long the driver bolster lasts.
I bought a set of seat covers for my 96 with sport seats. They look beautiful and fit perfectly, but the driver bolster started giving up very quickly. I put some clear Gorilla tape on it before it blew out.
I wish you good luck with these. They look very nice.

If there will be any premature wear that would be the spot I think would be most likely, just like the steering wheel and column in C4's getting loose due to owners using it as a hand hold getting out. In my exits I tend to lift my butt up so it doesn't rub on the left bolster, but only time will tell.

Looking forward to hearing how you like them over some time. I see that Coverking is making the late model sport seat covers with the diagonal stitching! I may have to try them next time around.

are these slip-on covers? meaning they're meant to be taken on and off? or do they get installed over the foam?

They slip on, one piece on back and one for seat. They're not meant to be taken on and off.

Default Looks Good

Your seat covers look very nice. I replaced mine with factory looking ones by Corvette America. They cost $1,400 uninstalled. Interior parts are very costly on our C4’s. Something for prospective buyers to take note.

I Just visited the Coverking sight, I didnt see an option for the emblem in the headrest. Did you add this yourself or am I missing something? Can you provide a link to where you ordered yours? They look great!!

Same here. The only place I saw that had the option was the CARiD website. No idea why it's not on CoverKing's site.

Those C4 leather seats have to be treated once a month with leather seat oils and not with any cleaners because it breaks down that thin leather side bolster They changed to Lear in 1994 and recalled them because of seat support. They were like sitting on ply wood!

The option for logo on headrest is available on the CarID site for an extra $30. https://www.carid.com/1991-chevy-cor...ODEL|Hatchback

I've used Coverking seat covers for a variety of cars and trucks. They always fit well and last for >10 years.

Has anyone used the genuine leather seat covers from CoverKing? I am looking at this as an option ($625) as opposed to spending $1,500+ for mounted leather. The challenge I have with CoverKing is they do not offer red leather and I am wondering if the black leather will look funky with the red carpet and other trim. The console is black as is the dash. I am having a hard time justifying the additional dollars when the mounted leather seat covers are not OEM.

Are the cover kings real seat covers or permanent?
