Rides to name one in the 500 dollar range... there is a thread right now in this forum of leather seats for 399.. BTW I bought leather seat from Mid America in 10 years ago and they were 1200 dollars... I replace them with Rides seats.. better quality than Mid America by a long shot.

100 & leather, any colors any stitching any combination of patterns.

I just got a set off of eBay for $459 with shipping. They haven't arrived yet but when they do I'll post back regarding the quality. I searched all over and only a few places has pace car yellow so I'm limited by that

$399.00 a set on ebay from a seller going by the name of leatherseats11. I checked it out . Somebody on here purchased some. Posted a couple of days ago. You can't beat $399.00 for a pair of leather seat covers.

Hello,
just received my Ridies for my C5 sport seats made on order.
i am not an upholstery specialist and have no experience in changing seats cover.
they look well done, sewing is proper, seams are tight, leather looks of good quality. I'll share some pictures with you so you can make your own opinion. They will be fitted on new foam by a specialist.
enjoy.







Go on the C6 forum https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...at-covers.html where I posted all details pictures.
will see how it looks once fitted

Ridies, without question. There is a place on Ebay and people seem to like the results. It's a British company and from what I've seen have NO where near the flexibility of design that Ridies offers. If I were a glutton for punishment I would buy a new set from Ridies just to change the color!

I know there is a British firm on ebay that supplies leather goods, but maybe it’s not the one in the above link. I have samples from the British one.
