Rain-X Weather Beater Wiper Blades

For those who can't afford the Latitudes or similar blades, these are the best alternative. They're still slightly on the more expensive side, but I've never bought better. Aanco, Bosch, none of them come close.

Pros:
-Quiet
-Crystal clear vision
-Long life

Cons
-Little pricey

I really recommend using these with Rain-X 2-in-1 window cleaner. With the cleaner, in light rain, you don't even need the wipers. It also gives a slicker surface for the blades, which also helps the life of the blades and cut down on noise. I apply it to all my windows about every 5 days and my vision is always clears.

I want to try latitudes and compare. My dad has them on his Rodeo and I'd say they're about the same, just look different.

i just replaced my driver side with one of these for a 3500 miles road trip. They skipped and jumped, even after I waxed the windscreen......paid 13.00 for mine. Basic Bosch's were better imo.
