most agressive pedals (3-piece, I have a clutch)?

Heya all.

I'm a bit surprised, but in a recent search for agressive pedals, all I'm finding anymore are 'driving' pedals for cars.

I'm looking for pedals with some of the spikey qualities of some of the better aluminum bicycle or motorcycle pedals to keep certain work shoes I have from slipping off of them.

Why anyone who owns a Jeep would put on anything like

or
http://www.quadratec.com/products/12600_0122.htm
or
http://www.quadratec.com/products/55003_2000.htm

is beyond me ... unless they have a city Jeep?

Anyway...

I'm looking more for grip -

I work for a motorsports shop and I have seen in my catalogs where you can get weld on foot peg wideners. Maybe these may be what you are looking for. Found them on eBay.

With vehicle pedals, you want grip, but you don't want so much that it can snag on your shoe (different from a bike where you want it to hold on tight). That could be dangerous

I've got something like this, works well with mud or snow covered shoes.

If I went that route, I might, instead, get a solid(er) aluminum pedal and take it to a machine shop to get real grip put in it. Thanks though.

I've toyed with buying those same style 'wideners' for my DR650.

I guess that could work if I can't find something more agressive - thank you. I hadn't seen this style before.

Ugh... don't see it with the "Man's" pedal though - just for automatics.

I may have found what I was looking for - or close to it.

Those jaggy points are worrisome. "Unintended acceleration " accidents have been caused by catching a shoe on gas pedal, that looks like a real risk.

I run this one on the clutch. When I pull the plastic bit out, the spikes grip into y boots in snow and mud alike. Its nothing like your pics up there but you could run some bolts through and have the tips lock into the bolt tread

By folks who don't know how to drive or lift their feet.

Keep in mind here - I drive vehicles with clutches... I know how to lift me feet.

Damned good idea there, thanks kjg! I could even use the pedal covers the Jeep came with

I had those cheap pedals on an old truck - they were OK, but with the plastic gone I bet you're right... they'd be cheap and much better!

OK, this gives me ideas and options - thanks guys!
