Because I change my wipers every year, I just buy cheap ones.

Ding Ding Ding,..... We have a winner!

OK, I'm a geezer but most here'* standards, and years ago I used to try different ones and spend extra, half believing all the hype on the packaging. But after a winter of freezing and chipping the ice off them, etc..... None seem any better than the next by summer time. I go with the standard replacements at Wallyworld every spring.

Same ones I use, red package. I think there under $5 each. Change them every spring.

Ha that sounds good to me.
I was thinking i'd end up spending like 40 bucks on these.
I'm not though. I'll just buy the cheap ones if they're fine too.

Thanks for the input

LOL! Yeah some thing can just get way over engineered and priced when the cheap ones work just fine. I had to chuckle when I found out some BMW'* have wipers that turn 180 degrees. A soft one for rain, and it spins to reveal a harder one for snow...... Then there'* the Mercedes top offerings that have the little wipers on the headlights.

The fancy wiper blades never seem to work any better than the regular replacement blades. I do change between a winter blade and a standard blade though as the seasons change. Still, allot cheaper than shelling out $20 to $40 for a pair of the fancy shmancy ones!
