Question Durability

I am eliminating my doors. I will be stepping into my roadster, by way of seat. Would vinyl last longer than leather, if it is being stepped on regularly?

The short answer is yes, the vinyl will last longer. You might be able to get a thicker leather, but it will need maintenance. I usually like leather for jackets and seats. I like the way it moves and breathes a lot more than plastic. I have another car where stepping on the seat happens a lot, so I went with vinyl on it.
