    Best wipers

    It rains 8 days a year here, so wipers are hardly an issue for me.

    That said, I have replaced the rear with OEM last year, as I read non OEM doesn't curve correctly etc.


    For those of you who live in rain, what is the best FRONT wipers you guys like? I changed mine a couple of years ago, but the driver side is streaking and it really bothers me. So depends on your recommendation, I would pick up a driver one.


    Thanks

    I just replaced my driver side with a Windex high performance blade. So far works pretty sweet. We'll have rain over the next 48 hours, will let you know how it holds up. Got it at KMart.

    Light rain this morning, a difference of night and day between the driver side and passenger side. I'm pretty happy thus far. The downpour is expected on the commute home this afternoon. If I'm parked, I'll grab a picture in action.

    I got the Trico Neoform Wipers recently and they've been great. I came from Goodyear Hybrids that I got from Costco for $3 each. They Goodyears started streaking a few uses in and were probably one of the worst I've ever used. Figured I'd try them for that price.

    ha, well I was raised in NYC, can't vouch for the NJ people, but I'm sure the ex governor here gave you a good impression.
    Here's another pic with better contrast to tell the difference.

    RainX Latitude. I have been using those for years and have never looked back. Rain, snow or whatever... it has worked very well for me.
