Don't like the tread pattern, too bad. Don't like black and red, too bad...

Five paint colors are offered—including monotone treatments, you might be pleased to learn if you find the truck in these photos to be on the tacky side. The standard—and only—Rebel interior setup is black with red and gray highlights. And lots of Rebel and Ram logos. The seats are decorated with prominent depictions of the tread on the truck’s Toyo tires; it sounds dubious, but the seats are arguably the coolest of the many custom touches on the Rebel.

That has me thinking they should have also went with some variation with the interior to better cater to the type of person that would be buying these. Who knows, maybe they will come out with more interior options when they realize that it's what people might end up wanting.

I like the sporty buckets, but the tread pattern is really not squaring with me. All exterior paints better be optimized to work with a black and red interior...

Fortunately for RAM, someone who really wants this truck for many of it's features might just look past what the seats look like, just have to be happy they got other things about it correct.

Its not even a tread pattern generally that is bad. I mean I could see a better version of the tread pattern that would look better, I think that they just chose the wrong tread pattern to put on there.

It helps to know why they went with this exact pattern than just suggesting something that would 'look better,' they just didn't go with any random pattern because they thought it looked good, that's not how it works.

I am really liking the seats

Use of Rebel and Ram logos as well as tread pattern from the stock Toyo Tires complements the Rebel.

I think the tread pattern looks like damp wrinkly laundry, but that is just my opinion :D
LOL I hope that is something RAM thought about before going ahead with it, since now that you mentioned that, i'm not sure if i'll ever see it as a tire tread pattern ever again.

Sorry if I burst your bubble. That's just the first thing I saw with that fabric. Too bad that is the only option. I might have to get seat covers.

while pictures may not be the greatest to get a sense for how something like this will be like in person, depending on how intense the embossing is on the pattern, it could be better in person and have more noticeable embossing

I wonder if I could get the one panel with the tire tread pattern replaced with a different fabric. Not from Ram, but aftermarket, just a seamstress. Or perhaps just seat covers would work as well.

Anything is possible as long as you're willing to put the money up for it.
You'll have to go custom till aftermarket picks up, that's if they ever will.

I would just go to an upholsterer. It'd cost some but nothing too outrageous depending on the fabric you choose.
True.

Something simple, along the lines of OEM shouldn't cost too much.

But it might also present a problem when you go to sell, all depending on how you go about having it all done

I'd have to see it in person before I say for sure, but I am not a fan from the photos. And then it would also be dependant on the price of switching it out. It is something that I would look into though. I don't think it would affect resale value much. I'd likely just choose plain black.

Good luck.

Let us know what pricing you get for the look you're aiming for.

Might be something other folks follow into as well.

Could get a set of covers from Wet Okole and have the Rebel logo added. Once your in the drivers seat and rolling down the road I am sure it will be great but for anyone riding in the back seat the red might start getting to them. I don't plan on being in the back seat so all is well.
