Does anyone know if Honda wiper refills from the dealer fit into Rain-X beam style wipers?

Don't think they make refills for beam type wipers.

Most wiper blades can be refilled, but the "spine" is of varying widths. Most Honda (and other Japanese brand cars) use inserts with a spine width of 6mm. The beam blades I put on my son's car (Rain-X Latitude) have 8mm spine width. I have an assortment of silicone rubber inserts I bought on eBay in both 6mm and 8mm in adequate lengths to refill the blades on his car and mine. On mine I'm still running the original blades - car is a Mazda3 - with the silicone inserts. I've also successfully refilled rear wiper blades with inserts for years. Those are not generally "designed" to be refilled.

I'm not so cheap that I wouldn't just buy new blades if they worked better. The silicone inserts I've been using ship from Malaysia and have already been on the car a couple of years and still perform well. Disclaimer: my car is in a parking garage at work and a garage at home so my wiper blades are going to last longer no matter what.
