    What wipers are you guys running, I currently have the stock blades on but are heading out. I used the rainex blades and tried the Bosch blades on my last car. The only thing I didn’t care for was how much the bracket stuck out once mounted. I haven’t had any issues with the stock ones and was thinking of just getting them, any thoughts?

    Besides the super expensive Bosch Icons, I haven't found a better wiper than OEM.

    A real good cleaning and waxing of your windshield before replacing your wipers can make a new set last a lot longer.

    I run the Toyota Sightline blades on both of my cars. They last for about 2-3 years and wipe really well.

    I like the stock wipers but they easily freeze up with snow/ice. So for winter, I changed to Michelin Stealth Ultra Hybrid. Have been happy with these on previous cars as well. I got mine at Walmart.

    I had the rainx ones and I was not impressed, they quickly were leaving streaks. I usually run the cheaper to mid range blades and change them about once a year, usually headed into winter.

    do you have the wiper heater on yours? Ok so it doesn't heat the wiper but where they sit on the window, it really seems to help mine.

    I do have the wiper heater but those just warm up the blades and not the wiper frame. And that's what freezes up with snow and ice.
