Default Weather Stripping.

What’s the best product for weather stripping, gasket seals, window lace. Exc?
I would like to buy a complete kit.
I was looking at soft seal. Pros or cons would be appreciated.

Thanks Kirk

Do not use softseal weatherstrips. They are too stiff and your doors etc will not close. Use Metro.

Default Steele Rubber Products

I prefer Steele Rubber Products over all the others.... They fit, and the quality is ALL there.

They are a crap shoot imho. They resell a lot of other manufacturer’s stuff and quality/firmness varies wildly. Ask me how I know....

I was there a few months ago, picked up the soffseals and suddenly the trunk and doors fit terribly, even after a couple weeks of 'settling'.

This picture below is a comparison of the trunk seals between soffseal and metro. metro has the hollow centers and overall is a shape that fits the trunk a whole lot better.

Best part of all, I picked up my metro seals on amazon for even less $$.
steele rubber were actually very close to where I live but mixed reviews kept me away.
