Wiper blades

Due to some recent events, I can no longer afford to put PIAA silicone wiper blades on both vehicles - what a shame because it is an outstanding product! Can anyone recommend a particular brand that they have had good results with - clean wipe, quiet, long lasting? Thanks for the input!

Wallymart sell's Michlin brand wiper blades. Haven't been on my truck long but clean well. I usually use tri-co had decent luck.

The michlin runs about $4 each +/-

I like the rain-x brand - a little more expensive ($7-8 set?) and are very quiet and work well. They've been on my g/f's car through rain, snow and sleet and work great. When mine are shot on my truck i'll go either silicone or more than likey the less expensive rain-x.

Here's an idea. Put one piaa on each of the vehicles driver's side and one anco on the pass side.

Around here Anco is the name brand most prevelent.

I have the Anco Countors which are very similar to the Bosch Icons and Michelin wipers, (one piece, rubber coated spring steel). I had these on my VW for years with no problem, no chatter or skipping during head winds.

Another vote for the Bosch Icons, here. Best I've seen yet.

I just did the same. The Rain-x wipers were their higher-end model (can't remember the exact name right now-$17 each) but the local parts house had a mfr BOGO rebate so I bought them.
Put the Rain-X fluid in my resevoir too.
So far, so good. I am tracking longevity as well.
