Could someone suggest a wiper blades other than the PIAA's which she has on now.
Their good and all but for 50 bucks delivered they only lasted a year, or would that be normal?
I've read that the Bosch Micro TripleEdge ll suppose to be at least as good at a fraction of the price.
Your input is appreciated,

Personally, I like the Anco winter blades.
They DO have a tendancy to try to lift at high speeds, although for reasons I don't fully understand, that lessens as they age.
But most importantly, you live in NY and winter is coming.

Most mfgs. recommend replacing blades every 6 mos (depending on driving habits) or up to a year so you got a fair deal. Most of the Trico's we sell price around $10 to $15 a pair. Small price to pay to see clear.
Just a tip, if you take some glass cleaner (we use sprayway which has no ammonia) and spray it on a paper towel, then *carefully* wipe down the blades, you will probably find all kinds of black junk coming off. This will help their efficiency a bit as long as they are not in need of replacement. I do this to my blades about once a month.

BTW, I recently put a triple edge brand on the rear of our outback, and I don't think I have ever used a worse wiper blade.

I buy Canadian tire's teflon coated winter blades every december and leave them on all year. I put an extra spring (a few cents at the same stores) on the arms to prevent them from lifting at high speed.
Just my experience.

I know, I know, I can buy two packs of different sizes, but to me, it's easier my way. Besides, I'd probably lose the extra blades in my garage and have to buy another two packs the nest time.

The one I bought have a teflon strip running the length of the rubber.
So far, they work better than any that I have bought.
None of that freakin chatter when it's misting, and so far, are holding up very well.
About time to change them out I think, winter is coming up here in the mountains. It is 36 degrees this morning.
