Default Corbeau Seat Identification

So i don't know anything abot seats...never had an aftermarket seat at all, but I've been offered these in a trade. I haven't seen them in person just this picture so if anyone knows exactly what they are and if they'll fit a 95 i'd appreciate an ID

they look like corbeau forza seats. i have them in my 92......not ideal. they fit, but the shoulder section seriously rubs against the top of the door. i would suggest a narrower seat unless they are a great deal.

Are they comfortable for you? if so how big are you because i am SMALL, VERY SMALL (5'10 but only 110lbs. soaking wet, no that wasnt a typo One hundred and ten pounds, and yes i eat like no other so don't start) thyey'd be going in a daily so i'm kinda concerned about long term comfort, not so much how hard they are to get in/out of though.

I fit in a forza comfortably at 6'1" 185. You're going to swim in them.

At your weight you might even consider a junior seat. (Not trying to be a dick)

Damnit the whole time i ws standing around shotting **** beside your car i should've sat in it to see what they felt like, didn't realize they were the same seats...i gotta start paying more attention to little ****. do they actulaly make junior seats that will bolt in to the driver's side? if so that would give me an awesome excuse to not let anyone else drive the car

To those of you that have them....do you think they and the harnesses in the picture are worth trading a set of $12-1300 vintage magnesium 13" panasports that i can't seem to sell for anything? (they won't fit over 1.8 brakes but they fit a 1.6 with no problem. and no i cant shave the calipers enough to make them fit.)

Reading is fundamental. I have Sparcos

Pics of the wheels? I may be able to move them for you. And no, Corbeaus are $250 a pop new,so I'd say not worth it, ESPECIALLY with 4 points.

I bought my Corbeau seat and rail for just over $200. Like $220 iirc.
The seat is very comfortable, and i drive very long distances at a time, 80 or so miles to go see my parents and 33 miles each way to work m-f, when I was dailying it.
Fit is very very tight in the car, but it is managable.
I am 6' at 180lbs of pure studness, and fit just fine, some room to spare.

Those harnesses look like **** btw.

seats will be too big for you.....slightly too big for the car......and a shitty trade for expensive panasports.

Well you didnt say you had Sparcos you said you fit in Forzas so I guess I assumed you had them...didnt pay attention to what you had when i was lookig at your car...my bad...thanks for the input on the seats though, I'm going to get the guy to throw cash on top unless I can sell these to someone else soon.

I meant reading the "SPARCO" on my seat back.

How about an AR with questionable history and over a thousand rounds for the wheels?
