Windshield wiper?

Okay, this is like my 4-5 time i had to change my windshield wipers. I've bought from RainX (sucks really bad) to Bosch (works pretty good but doesn't last long). I don't know what other brands that has reasonable price on it. But i still currently have Bosch for now. Any recommendations?

I was using Bosch, and mine lasted for 1 month litterally before it made a streak right in front of my view. I just switched to the Trico exact fit which work better right now. IM not sure about the last time but they seem good and were cheaper.

From what ive noticed so far I think yes. I thought Bosch would be good but they started streaking in less than 1 month for me which is unnacceptable. PLus instead of 2 bend things, 1 on each side. Its got 3, 2 on the further end which makes it look sicker. It also came with some optimizer liquid stuff, but I dont know if it does anything, but I put it on both the new Trico and the old Bosh on the passenger side which I left on.

At my Kragen Auto Parts they had the Bosch, Trico, and one other really expensive or cheap (I cant remember, I think cheap though) kind.

I bought my Runner late '04 and it had PIAA blades already on it and they're still on there and still are working nicely but I'm going to price another pair by summer and if they aren't too costly I'll probably go with the PIAAs again otherwise I've had decent luck with Trico replacements.

I use Toyota replacement and they work great and last for about 2 years or so...but they're only 8 bucks a pop so its well worth it.

Use them together with RainX windshield wiper fluid and its amazing how well you can see...even in a heavy storm.

I just bought some Trico Blades today, we'll see how long they last. I bought the refills for my girlfiend's Avalon, and they seemed to be performing well.
