Best Wiper Blade Siize Needed?

My blades are talking back every time I turn them on. Saying,"replace me" over & over. My DW is complaining also. Now is the time for all good husbands to heed the call.

I use the Bosch Icon... I prefer the 24" on drivers side and a 23" on the passenger side. I've also used the rain-ex latitudes but I find that our strong sun down here kills them in no time. Just my .02

Oh, the reason why I use a 23" on the passenger side is because of the curve of our windshields.

i dont mine the small section is misses on the very end of the pass side because it gives that extra inch on the rest of the window.

Yep.....24" driverside and 23" passenger side works best. First I use a complete Set of 24" but this look a bit odd on the passenger side due the window curve.

Be sure to include wiper mod in your signature line.

I think it was 18" I tried on the rear but had to go back to stock. The wiper kept knocking the rubber grommet for the wiper fluid hose out of the glass. I thought I had also put larger on the front, but I just measured the other day and they were both 20". I was thinking of either 22" or 24" next time I replace them.

Thank you all for this discussion. I needed new wipers, so after reading this I purchased 24 in blades for the front and a 17 in blade for the rear. What a difference! The usable space on my windshield is much larger now!

I went with 22s on the '01, but had to stick with the 16 inch wiper on the rear window. Like AndrewWV, it kept hitting the rubber grommet for the winsheild wiper fluid.

However, in light of this new information, I may do what everyone else is doing and go with 24 on the driver side and 23 on the passenger side.
