Default Windsheild Wipers!

OK so I did some research through the forum and decided to buy the Michelin radius wipers. So I read in one of the topics that you should buy the passenger side smaller because it doesnt touch the window, I bought 2 22" wipers and found this to be true the passenger side does not touch the window on the outside by a considerable amount. So I returned one of them and bought a 21" and it still didnt touch the window, returned that and got a 20" and it still doesnt touch the [email protected]*N window . So my question is should I just go back to the 22" or keep the 20" or go smaller?

Anyone else with this problem?

stick with what OEM specifies, it will eventually bow to fit the window correctly.

This thread could not have been timed better. I just discovered the same thing. Went with cheapie blades, which work, but not nearly as well. Will be surfing rockauto.com for the OEM blades.
