I've bought a few different wipers including bosch and I haven't found a decent brand yet.

What is the BEST brand?

I've had these wipers probably 6 months and they were half decent in the beginning but maybe 2 months later they're too stiff and they make the dredded noise that everyone hates.

My friend has the ricer dual blade wipers on his mazda pickup and they work great. I can't believe it. I hate those things and he's kicking my rump roast with them!

I got some silicone PIAA's from TireRack.com. Best I've ever used. They stay flexible and seem to add a silicone coating kinda like Rain-X.

We've bought several sets of Valeos, which were expensive but buy one, get one free from Tirerack. They replaced the regular and winter blades we'd been using.

My other choice is Bosch.

I recently discovered Denso wiper blades, and they have been the best I have owned ever, they are just tricky to install, but will never fall off .

I recently found a new favorite at wal-mart of all places, michelin wiper blades. They are only like 6 bucks a peice and I put them on all my cars now and get no streaks and decent life. Used to run Bosch.

the best wipers are new ones. installing new ones has always been far more rewarding than any particular brand for me. find one you like and replace. in areas with snow and ice and bad road conditions i haven't found a substitute for replacing the dang things.
