2007 Wrangler Wipers

Hi,

Question. I am looking for new wipers and have seen recommendations for 15 and 16 inch blades and also for 13 inch on the passengers side. What works or does it really matter?

Thanks

15 or hard to find. I run 16's and they work fine, complete coverage on the windshield and more options.

RainX. 15" on pass... 16" on driver. Had them since last year at this time. Still not streaking. 25-30 bucks for both at autozone? the clips are stronger IMHO on the RainX than than the cheap brands.

Thanks everyone. I will go with the 16". I have tried different blades in the past but have not tried Rain-X. I will give them try.

The 6 month old Michelin brand wipers on my Avalanche were about to drive me through the wall with the noise and skipping across the windshield.

Never though I would be happy about spending $40 for wipers, but the Rain-X wipers are well worth it.

The wipers are nice. I have another problem.

When the wipers come across the windshield going from right to left it is smooth...when it returns it seems to stick.

It doesn't do it when there is constant water on the windshield. It never did this before. Do the arms need to be adjusted?
