While the drilled aluminum looks cool, they don't have the most traction, and if you step in the car after a rain storm, they are downright dangerous.

Are there any slip on rubber pads for the pedals, they seem to be all one piece with the levers so swapping them out doesn't seem feasible.

Thanks for the helpful replies. I'll check autozone. It only rains for a few weeks out of the year here, but it's that time of year now, and don't need my foot slipping off the clutch or the brake.

Maybe its your shoes,\. Try a pair of deck shoes from L.L.Bean or ShoeBuy.com they work for me. GOOD LUCK....:agree:

The C5 has the same "problem" but I just rub my feet on the floor mat provided a few times and off I go. But yes if you aren't paying attention and put a wet shoe onto the clutch pedal bad things could happen.

That's funny, because on my other car the celica, it has aluminum pedals (for all 3, not just brake/clutch) with rubber circle inserts in them.

You could probably get some rubber from Home Depot and make some DIY inserts.

Yep, my MS Protege is exactly the same, aluminum pedals with rubber pad inserts. Sparco pedals actually.

The cut of the C6 pedals would make inserts difficult, because they would just fall through the holes without some way to attach them from the back.

I still haven't made it to autozone to try to find those ones that screw on, but I like the coating idea if it would be durable.

If you want a rubberized or plastic coating, go to your local hardware store and buy the dip used to coat tools -- I forget what it is called. You could even color match to your vehicle.
