I love Rain-X blades. The set that I recently used were in service for well over a year through all 4 seasons. Maybe not the cheapest. Maybe not the best. But I'd say I got my money's worth out of them.

Bosch Icon, without hesitation. Rather expensive, but pay for themselves since mine last a minimum of 2 years.

These Rain-X Latitude wipers have been discussed here in several posts. Here is the latest discussion from a very recent post:

Bosch Icon. Take my word for it, I've used them all, I've also gotten 2+ years out of them, the ones on the Ram are just now getting bad at THREE years old!

Another Bosch Icon vote from me. I recently pulled a set off our VUE which had been on there for 3 years of Michigan seasons. They were still performing well.

Whatever came OEM on your vehicle. I'm using OEM blades on both vehicles with good results. They're even cheaper compared to some of the alternatives being mentioned here. Double-check with your dealer, though!

I like the Michelin from Walmart. I avoid all things Bosch.

This is very true of Honda blades, in my experience.

I am guessing that with all of the glowing raves for the Icons, that Bosch REALLY IS doing some hard core quality control at the Chinese factories where they are ALL manufactured.

I STILL have a problem paying that kind of premium price for something from Sinoland. frown

I just put a fresh set of Bosch Micro Edge on all 3 vehicles.
For some reason haven't had great luck with beam style.

I had pretty good luck with the Bosch Micro Edge(when they had EXCEL) as far as lasting many years(3). But, after the first year, they didn't wiped the glass as clean as I'd prefer.

I am having a different issue with Beam Wiper Blades. They clean the glass to my liking but, don't last as long as I'd prefer.

So, I try to buy onsale and replace sooner smile

Trico or Bosch beam blades. I've used the cheap beam blades and the expensive ones from both companies and did not notice a significant difference in performance or longevity.

I have noticed that beam blades seem to be superior to the old style frame blades, at least in the applications I've used them in.
