With my luck I’d buy some expensive blades and we’d have a drought. Keep your wipers and windshield clean and save your dough.

I have rain x blades on the company car. They work well so far (about a month). I figured out that putting Rain X on the windshield would eventually make my rubber ones chatter. It also made bugs streak worse when using the wash and wiper to clean.

I've gotten to the point were I only use the Rain-X ones. But I got there by trial and error.

I use the OEM Toyota ones. They are expensive but I'm still on my second pair after 9 years. Due for replacement now but if I can get 4-5 years out of a pair I'm happy.

I originally bought/installed the piaa aero vogue at the beginning of this endeavor. They were returned after one use because the design of them held water and slung it onto the freshly wiped passenger side of windscreen.
After doing the whole return process with amazon Iím here with the super silicone (another design, didnít know Iíd end up doing wiper reviews but might as well pass it along). The original piaa aero came with the silicone wipe towelette to treat the wind screen which I did. When sending the aero vogue back I reinstalled the original equipment blades and found they were grabbing and doing the shutter (canít be good for the wiper drive train).

Ditto you can't change back to synthetic rubber blades unless you thoroughly clean the glass. I always clean my glass with a mixture of isopropyl alcohol even though I continue to use the Rain-X brand. It's amazing what builds up on your glass.
