I have tried many different types and brands. For winter, I run those rubber covered ones, also good in mud. They don't let mud or snow get caught in the blade framework and smear as they sweep. For normal conditions of rain... Bosch. They seem to be the best. Also, when you replace the blades wash the glass with 20/10 stuff in the little green bottle with a white cap. Then clean it again with glass cleaner. This takes the film off the window.
Works like a charm.

I am using those rubber covered "winter blades" on my truck, works pretty good for me. You can pick them up at Cambodian Tire.

Bosch, the only way to go. Been using them for ever. Always work great.

Off topic, but Greg, I want your rear bumper... where can I get one, and what does it cost?

Actually the best wipers out there now are PIAA wipers new to Canada. They were developed in Japan for rally cars. I have a set on the van. You can be driving in a hard down poor on the highway and only need intermitent wipers.. I would go with PIAA for sure..

Other than wipers, buy a bottle of rain-x. I just tried that stuff, and I find that I rarely use my wipers anymore.

I have tried rain-x as well as rain away and was not very happy with it. It wore off in about 3 days. I am now using stuff called stp vision blade, I put it on my windshield 7 months ago and it still works great. You can pick it up at Canuck Wheel and it costs like $10.

The Crappy Tire teflon winter blades together with rain x works fine for me. Now only if we'd get some winter.
