I have the silblades found below.

They are a little more pricey then over the counter blades, but they sure work great! I believe Jerry pointed me to them!

I'd either get the cheapest thing you can find or go with the silblades. Nothing in between has seemed any beetter than the el-cheapos to me.

Damn, just bought a set of those PIAA graphites too. Wish I would have known about the others... I guess next time. My problem only seems to be on the drivers side, didn't matter what blades I used, last week changed the arm, and the same thing, streaks...

HA....got the same thing, only in reverse.....Driver's side fine, passenger side is HORRIBLE. Same thing too, no matter what I did to fix it, streaks galore. But, since mine is on the passenger side, I just let the wife deal with it.

Yeah, that wouldn't bother me either, well the wife in the Jeep would, but the streaking no... I've had mine for almost 2 years, and my wife's been in it about 3 times.

I just bought a pair of Bosch blades... some kind of micro whatzits... not quite sure, came in a grayish box and seem to work great, clean on both sides. About $8 bucks each.

How often do you guys change your wiper blades?
I live in the desert and we only get about 2-3 inches of rain a year so it's not a big problem but it seems I have to change them often. Our problem out here is the rubber drying and not having the squeegee effect they should.

Do these non-rubber types last long in hot dry climates?

Thanks,
Randy

I use those super sexy double blades with the spoilers on them to add downforce.

I believe that Jeep's eat wiper blades. Never seem a vechicle go through them like this thing does.

There was something I saw a while back that someone was recommending....It's this spring attachment for the wiper arm that helps put more pressure on the blade and helps eleminate streaking etc....I think they were in NAPA
