kirkey drag seat

I am just confirming the 17"width seat will fit. Also, the 18 1/2 if possible. Hard to make decision without having sat in one nor set in place for fit.
Thanks for any update on this choice. I am 5'11 and 225 (still).

I'm about your size and went with the 18" seat width in the Kirkey Classic lowback seat. I have a bit of wiggle room but not much. These seats are non-perforated Vinyl, if they fit too snug on a hot day your butt will be sweating...a little ventilation room on the sides helps with this. The 18" fit fine in the cockpit, you may need to trim a slot into the backrest where the 1" square tube crosses in front of the rear tires to gain more leg room.
