Question Best replacement wiper blades for pontiac?

What is everyone using? What do you like? What doesn't work? Give us your wiper blade review!!

I've been using trico neoform beam wiper blades for quite a while now after switching from icons. IMO they work excellent, are super quiet, look great and are the lowest cost top-of-the-line wiper available. Before I just buy another set, I'd like to hear if there'* anything new and exciting out there?

I put a set of Bosch Icon'* on mine and wasn't very impressed with them. They worked great for about 1 month and then started to streak and miss spots.

Napa Exact Fits (really cheap and do fine on the Bonnie not so much on the Grand Am)

I like the Rain-x blades, but that'* in Florida since we got rain and no snow/ice. When I move to Georgia and eventually back to Missouri I'm gonna need something that can handle snow/ice.

I've used Anco blades for years. They're cheap (about $5 or $6 at Walmart) and they last about a year or two. I've tried others, but I always seem to go back to Anco.

Thumbs up bought wipers

BTW, actually shopped online over the weekend and bought a couple of pairs as well as a couple of rear blades (what a pain to find)... Got trico neoforms for $8.38 a piece after free shipping and rebate...normally $15-$23 each.

I use any brand that'* on sale. I've never noticed a difference. The only thing I do differently is go up 1 or 2 sizes. The Regal was made to use 20" blades, but 24" blades fit perfectly and wipe away more surface. The Bonneville also uses one size higher.

Living in the north with ice and snow, that scares me. I'm assuming that the wiper motors and linkages are rated for a certain load. Adding length is adding load and could be dangerous. I would think the engineers would have originally specified the longer wipers and there must be a reason they didn't.

BTW - got my neoforms that I mentioned above and put them on. Worked great in the first snow storm of the season!!
