Default Re: Best Windshield Wiper Blades?

Hands down, the best I've ever used are PIAA Silocone wipers. A little on the spendy side, but they've been on the truck since Dec '07 and they're only now showing the need to be replaced. I use dubs on my ranger (20" blades).

The others I used (Bosch Icon, other brands I don't remember) end up turning to crap in no time...especially those expensive Icon's.

I have the Rain X ones on my Ranger and love them. They are the best wiper blades I've ever had.

I have the michelins on my truck and i can't understand why the edges of the blades never touch the glass, i have had them on there for about a year and a half now but the edges still don't touch, other than that i'm happy w/ the performance of them, they don't streak for me...

I'll have to give those a try on the next one.

I use rain-x on my windshield, and decided to try the wipers, and they went to shit on me in a hurry... even with the rain-x coating on the windshield

mine are the same way, IDK but they work so it doesn't bother me. They only don't touch at the bottom.

Been rockin' my triple-edge blades for 3+ years, and they still work awesome.

Yea those were another set of blades I was looking at, the tripledge silicone blades. I used to have them on my Dodge Stratus a long time ago and they did work really good! I just wasn't sure if I was going to get the same result on the Ranger.
