I work in the rubber industry and am involved in the rubber and testing of wiper blades.
Tridon or Anco blades are the most common og the good blades to be found at most parts stores and wallyworld.
Bosch is also very good, but pricey.
I personnally go with the cheapest of the medium priced ones of either Tridon or Anco

I installed a month ago Bosch Blades, they work great. Were the cheapest blades at the auto store. Ohh, these are only my 2nd set on the TJ. I used the OEM blades for 4 1/2 years before finally replacing them... they were a low priority item on my list of "to do's ...

Heres a blade question: My rear wiper is no longer making contact for the top 8 inches of the window, How do I fix this? The blade still looks good, its just not making a full wipe.

I switched my TJ and my wife's JGC to Silblade wiper blades around 4 years ago and I'm amazed they're still in perfect condition. They come with a 5 year warranty and I'll go with them again. They're at http://www.silblade.com/ but they're too expensive if you buy them directly from Silblad. You can find them much cheaper elsewhere on the web, try using www.froogle.com/ for better pricing.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

After suffering through streaks on my drivers side only (of course) with mutliple wiper blades. I tried the PIAA graphite blades, and they kick ***. No more streaks, and they're supposed to be real good in snow and ice, guess I'll find out tonight.

It is better to keep one's mouth shut and be thought a fool.... than to open it and remove all doubt.
