I use Silblades. www.sspinc.com The first set I had lasted 4 years,
till I sold the truck. Still have one in use, on another vehicle.
Have a set on my new truck, hoping this set lasts just as long.

It's happened to me too...with the original equipment blades. After
1.5 years, the edge looks like a crosscut saw and I can't see worth a
damn. The replacement ones are still soft after a year. Whatever
they used for the OEM was terrible.

nothing. I'm on my second set of these, and I only had to buy a

I think I'll just wrap these in tape to keep from scratching my
winshield,since I just got inspection.I'll buy some new ones for next
inspection'I'll just take them off and keep them in the fridge,and put
the old ones back on.Every time I go to the parts stores the trash cans
at the doors are full and have wiper blades hanging out the tops.Some
times you'll see 3or 4 men outside especially when weather is
bad,replacing wiper blades.Have A Good Day! Bobby
You notice that too huh? Nothing but crap out there these days. The worst
thing I ever did was replace my factory blades (based on years of service,
not that they had stopped working good).
