    The Bosch ICON wiper blades are pricey but I certainly found out why..style and performance perfection.

    Go with any "Silicone" blade opposed to rubber, they will not rot.

    2nd for Bosch Icon. They're the best on the market, period. 25% at Advance Auto Parts, go take a look at one and you'll understand why they're more expensive. They can look up the size for you there... though I'm sure someone on here knows... I'm guessing 19"?

    I was going to say the same thing. I have Bosch ICONS on my car, and they are great blades. Normally they are $19-$21 a piece, but you can get them at Advance Auto for 25% off this month since they are having a sale. That puts them at about $13-$15 a piece, which is a bargain for the best wiper blades on the market.

    I think I've turned my wipers on twice in the last 2-3 years. I should probably check them to make sure they still work.

    I run Michelin Wiper Blades. 24" left and right. They have performed better than the Bosch I ran last time and have lasted twice as long. -Tim

    I put on the PIAA silicone blades on mine 3 years ago, they're only now starting to leave streaks of moisture on a sweep. But they never quite fit the curve of the windshield as well as the OEM stock ones did and cost more than twice as much -- certainly did NOT wipe twice as better! So I am going to replace them this week with the OEM blades from my dealer.
