I plugged in Michelin Wiper blades on Amazon to see the reviews. They seem to be ok(not great). I'll see if this link works:

Mine would chatter and skip from day one. And yes my windshield was clean, and the blades were clean.

Switched to Rain X a few months ago, haven't had any problems.

I had the same experience as stranger706. I've tried the Michelin blades twice. Both times I was sorry. The ANCO/SuperTech blades are much better.

I use Supertech wipers from Walmart. There only 5 bucks a piece & they seem to work okay. I change them every 6 months.

Several years ago I tried a set from Walmart and they were teriffic. Eventually, replaced them with a second set and they were absolutely terrible. Haven't used them again.

The cheaper ones are no good. They chatter and squeak. The Stealth ones are good.

Michelin tires are awesome. Their blades which really the old Pylon brand with the name licensed from Michelin are cheaply made. Bosch Excel+ or Icon is my favorite these days since the Trico Exact Fit have cheapened up as well.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Looks like I'll be staying with the Bosch Micro Edge.

I bought a pair of the Michelins about 2 weeks ago and they've already turned to c r a p. I wish they'd get the Ancos back...why did they stop selling them anyway?

I agree, if you can get the Stealth ones with a rebate or on sale they are decent for the money.

Me too, but mine chatter in cold weather, below 32F.
