I've got a set of Bosche Icon's that I'm pretty happy with. Honestly though, get Rain-X windshield washer fluid and you hardly even have to use your wipers when it rains.

look at the trico neoforms or the other top line tricos. worked at auto parts stores (two of the big name ones) for quite a while and have tried everything from rain x to bosch to goodyear trico and all the store brands and such. trico by far lasts the longest and like the other guy said rainx washer fluid really helps out.

Silblades are probably the best wipers out there. Any style, i have the Hybrid one They're on amazon too and pretty cheap now. silicone coated and they last forever, not to mentn theyre probably the quietest and the most effective windshield wipers, the rainx and Bosch blades don't even come close. And I'm hella anal about my windshield wipers.

I have tried rain-x, Bosh, and no-names. I keep coming back to the factory ones. You can replace just the insert, as long as you still have the factory wiper.
Rain-x applied directly to the windsheild works the best, but the washer fluid additive works well inbetween applications.

Utah trashes wiper blades. I have tried the expensive ones and the cheap ones. The winter ones are the worst. I have come to the conclusion the expensive ones are just crap. They all end up lasting about a year around here (must be the dry air). So I just buy the cheapest ones after the first snow storm and I am good for a year.

I've had good luck with Rain-x Latitude. Don't use Rain-x applied to glass by hand (too much work) but, do use Rain-x washer fluid.

I run the Bosch Icon blades. The heat here can trash blades quickly. I want to get some Permatex Wiper Restore and apply it every 6 months or less to see if that helps my blades last longer.

Rain-X, plus I spray the Rain-X water repellent spray on all my windows. Works out nicely.


Any decent brand is good though with that spray. It's all about the spray.

It's all about the glass surface!

Put this on your windshield and you will be thanking me. It's so good that I don't even use my wipers when I am going over 60km/h!

I used rain-x window wax for years (you rub it on and then spend alot of sweat polishing it off). It works pretty well...about two months at a time. I then discovered Aquapel...easier to apply and lasts about four months. Hardly use the wipers at all..still use the rain-x wax on the side and back windows though..(Aquapel isn't exactly free). Cheapest place I've found it is Ebay..

This is true. I hardly use my wipers unless going slow and it's really pouring.
