I've tried it several times and always got a kinda of "foggy" trail
behind the wiper blades if I had to use them ( 30 mph doesn't blow the
water off like 140 does) or they just plain smear and don't wipe well.
Yes, I followed the instructions on the bottle, instead of waiting like
And it hard to remove once it's on.
(sticking to good old synthetic rubber windsheild wipers)
I agree 100%. Although I got lazy and started to use the Rain-X
windshield wiper fluid and don't have to do the application any
longer. Only downside is rain will not bead up quite the same as
the direct application. When I'm not lazy, I actually do both as the
wiper fluid helps maintain the direct application longer.
I had a '95 Chevy van for a work truck a few years ago. The wipers on it
were worthless at highway speeds. The wind would actually lift the wiper
right off the windshield. I drove out to a customer one evening, fifty
miles, in heavy rain. I could hardly see the wipers were so poor. Before the
trip back I stopped and applied RainX to the windshield. On the way back, in
similar rain I did not even use the wipers! The water would bead up and fly
right up and off the windshield.
I do not use RainX all the time, but it sure worked well with the crappy
wipers on that Chevy van,
You ought to check into the the PIAA Super Sporza wiper
replacement for wipers that lift off the surface of the glass.
I use them on my 2001 Ram since the OEM blades would
lift as well at highway speeds. These wipers are awesome.
It is no longer a problem as the job and the truck is gone. The company had
14 of those vans on the road and between all the drivers I think we tried
everything. RainX was the final conclusion, and screw the wipers as you did
not need them with RainX.
I agree...but there are times when that big ole nasty spot of
bug guts needs to be cleaned off as you are driving down the
road at highway speeds. The link is ro anyone that is tired
of their blades lifting off....trust me, they work superb for
any vehicle. Try them once and you'll wonder why the OEMs
don't have these, or something similar, as original equipment.
I hear ya. I haven't really run into enough snow yet to have
them be a problem....but they work very well for rain. Hopefully,
I'll find out how they perform with snow. Praying for another
2 footer here this winter. :^)
I just hope we get a valid warning the next time instead of the (it will
stop any time now) crap we got during that three incher or people will die
of starvation around here waiting for the roads to be cleaned. I do find it
funny watching heavy construction equipment (graders, loaders, and dozers)
out on the roads trying to do the job of snow plows.

Tell me about it. It's also been somewhat hilarious that for some
time, customers were willing to pay drivers with Bobcats and other
loaders more than a driver with a plow. Now they are starting to
realize a plow can perform a better job in much less time so the end
cost is less. Plus, can't tell you how many trailers I've seen jackknifed
with a loader on it trying to get to another site.
