    My truck is almost 1 yr old and is needing new wiper blades. What does everyone use? And where do you buy them from?

    You can buy 5$ wiper inserts from the dealer, try it out. I prefer the factory ones.

    The factory refills are the best blade you'll get and much cheaper,these things seem to last forever. I changed them at 20k 40k and 60k and the lod ones were still good.

    Agree. I’ve had good experiences with factory blades here in the rainy PNW.

    Only aesthetic mods so far Leer 180 cap & Clazzio covers on order.
    Agreed. OEM rubber strips only. Great quality, one of the few items from Toyota parts that doesn't require financing.

    I just changed mine out today since one broke on me that was frozen this morning. I went with RainX Silicone Advantage. Curious to see how they perform!

    Do you have a part number for the insert? I have been all over online and I only see the entire blade including the frame (without the arm). I like replacing just the insert and have done it for years, but just took delivery of my new Tacoma last month.

    Just purchased duralast conventional for $13 (each) at auto zone. Quick 10 second install and im okay with buying a new set next year if I need to.

    I put one Bosch winter blade (driver side) and one Rain-X blade (passenger side) on my Tacoma last winter. The Bosch was better and did a good job, it lasted about 10 months. Bosch winter blades on both sides now.

    They stock them at any dealer. They aren't usually even labeled with a number.

    I've used Michelin and Rain-x blades on my previous vehicles and thought they were good, bought a pair of Bosch Icons for my Tacoma at the end of 2018 and they are still working great. Best blades I have ever used and that's with Colorado's strong sun rotting the rubber and snow/ice etc. My truck is outside at all times too.

    Factory refills all day long. The OEM outperform any of the snake-oil type blades. They are cheaper as well.

    I'm a sucker for going bigger with wipers, esp on the Taco where I am looking out the top of the windshield. So, I put on a 24in drivers and 22in passenger. I did have to trim the flappy rubber part on the far right just a bit.

    Also, the Costco wipers (Michelin) were not doing well on our cars. We swapped to Aero brand beam type from Amazon. They come with an extra insert refill also. Really good, but we have only had them for month. Working great though.
