    I had the rain-x ones but the tip broke off and then lost part of the back reinforcement. They still worked but not as well.

    We use rain-x everything....

    Window Treatment
    and Washer Fluid

    Together they all seem to do a pretty good job.

    All of the expensive wipers that I have tried, ( rain-ex, bosch, all of the other brands) have the same problem. The tips break off in the cold. I just keep buying rain-ex and call it good.

    Michelin make a blade similar to the Rain x. It dosent have a frame so the snow and ice doesn't stick as much as a traditional wipper with a frame. I think I got mine at WalMart for about $30 for the pair.

    The Anco Winter blades if you can find them are IMHO the best.The Napa curved ones aren't too shabby either.

    Michelin brand, they are perfect when used the first few weeks but wear fast in storms.

    I like Michelin or rain-x whichever is not sold out at walmart when i go. They both seem to hold up well IMO

    I'm not sure the brand but I can tell you this, they work a lot better than the ones I put on the university maintenance departments F250 I traded mine out for!!!

    The guy parked with his tires on my lawn over the curb and sunk in 4 inches so when I went out to leave the guy a thank you note I realized it was a brand new truck so instead of a note I hooked the guy up with my custom aftermarket blades.

    I gift that will keep on giving.

    Carma is a *****

    Forget the free wiper blades. I would of taken pictures and made them pay me to fix that. Besides that Karma thing goes both ways.......

    I got good service from the Duralast winter blades at Auto Zone. No complaints here.

    i buy the annco wiper blades, they are reasonably priced. I also use the rain-ex on the windshield through the season, and good windshield deicer wash to make sure the blades have the best opportunity to keep things clean and not freeze

    Bosch Icons. They may be expensive but they are the best wiper blades I've ever owned! I swear by them now.

    Neo Blade from NAPA. Knockoff of the RainX & Bosch blades. Still end up buying a couple of sets of whatever blades every season it seems.
