    I did a search earlier today on the best wiper blades, came up with michelin and rain x as good choices. I'd like to hear any pos/neg comments on any you've tried. I've always used anco's because the were cheap and easy to install, but I think I'll try the michelins.

    I wasnt going to start a new thread since I got an answer by searching, but I thought I'd share this $10 rebate I ran across http://www.michelinwiper.com/docs/27630_Walmart_Rebate3.pdf

    I used anco's winter wiper blades. Cheap from Wal Mart. Speaking of wipers I need some for 2009 / 2010 season.

    Stay away from the Rain-ex blades, they should stick to just the rain-ex product, they lasted about a month, maybe a month and a half before I got rid of them. Nothing beats the winter blades for the winter that come in the blue package with the yellow and white writing, why am I drawing a blank, and then I go with the newer style there with no metal frame for the spring through the fall, great blades, great for highway driving

    We run ANCO blades, and have for YEARS!
    Except during snow storms, then we run heated wipers.

    Heated wipers are WAY worth the money!

    I use Michelin all year. Tried the RainX and hated them. The Michelin blades seem to hold up pretty good too.

    I give why do some of you hate RainX ????

    I have the NBS Chevy and even the original wipers made horrible noise and last a summer. I put on the RainX ( top end ) and they are quiet. No thumb on my window, smooth.

    Do not I repeat do not buy the rainx latitudes. They are the most expensive wiper I have ever bought and they were by far the worst I have ever had. Talk about streak central first time using them in winter conditions I had to go immediately to the nearest gas station to buy the 2.99 special and they were far superior to the rainx. They are the o ly product I have ever written a reveiw about online but I felt I had to due to how dangerous they are.
