Default Michelin wiper blades at Wally World

Just a quick note, Wal Mart sells Micheline licensed wiper blades that are made in China. I suggest one steer clear of these blades. On both the Bonneville and the Bravada the blades do not clean where the blade connects to the wiper arm, which ends up being the center/ main eye view of the windshield.

Bought TRICO NeoForm blades at Advance Auto last night to test on the Bravada. Made in Mexico. Hopefully better.

Good to know. I've never had a problem with the cheep blades. I replace mine every year. Winter is a bit rough on wiper blades.

The neoforms are ok but I've found that the best option is always the bosch icons

The Bosch icons on the SSEi made it through 2 winters and are still wiping like brand new. Put the same on the SLE, love them.

I put the Rain-X spray on my windshield, and suddenly, regular wiper blades didn't work very well. They would always skip or leave water behind.

I just bought some Rain-X wiper blades, and a fresh can of Rain-X spray. We'll see how that goes.
