I have to re-use the metal strips, but they never wear out. The OEM wipers wipe clean, and are very quiet, no squeaks at all.
Slow down. Never had that problem with mine.
Hmmm??

I've got the winterblades and have no issues with them (except the goofy looking red tips on 'em) Of course, I live in MN, where the driver'* licenses are water soluble. Never get a chance to do more than about 30 in the rain or snow...

But other than that, I generally just run the ANCOs. Never had an issue with them.

Cheap old Ancos and waxing your windshield says it all. Those rubber coated wipers ARE the pits. How much are the silicone ones?? Sounds like a good idea.

I've been using the Bosch wiper blades. Seem to work good and last 12-18 months. Winter destroys blades. The Rain-X washer fluid is cake. It puts itself on when you spray the windows!

I'm using the silicone wipers they sell at Advanced, and they work great, for a few extra bucks. And the Rain-X orange WW fluid is the shiznit! I rarely have to turn my wipers above intermittent anymore.
