The new seat or seats need to fit in the space between the doors of your car, so you need to know the measurement from door panel to door panel. Older cars were not as wide as newer cars, so the older your car is the more careful you need to be selecting the new seats. The height and depth of the new seats are also a consideration, but that shouldn't present too much of a problem.

More info would help

You might want to post what car you want them for and someone that has already done the swap could help with suggestions.
