Yes. The conclusion of the 10+ minute Project Farm YouTube video review of the test results of all those wiper blades was that the Bosch Icons worked best.
It seems that the most important aging factor that deteriorates the rubber is UV light.

Iím pretty happy with the OEMs. Theyíre about $8 at Conicelli Toyota online parts. Shipping is expensive but now you get free shipping on purchases of $75+.
Parts like 85214-0E140

The dealer here doesn't stock them. They will order them for you.
You would think they would because its an odd size and I have yet to find that size at a parts store.
I found them online from a dealer in Arizona.
Changing this blade is Pain.

Unless its a cheap economy car usually OEMs are the best. Might not be the cheapest though.

Reviews on the Rain-X wipers are always mixed because no one realizes or specifies which of the several different model of Rain-X blade they used. They make everything from basic cheap conventional to nice silicone ones.

That being said, I put a said of Latitude 2 in 1 blades on my dad's car and within a few weeks they were replaced. Worst blades I've ever had.

Many many many years ago, when PIAA headquarters was just a blocks from my work, I ran their Silicone blades on my Honda and they were incredible. I believe I had them 2 years before selling the car with them. Worked like new at that time.

I then put a set on my Jeep which saw a lot of off road dirt, mud, dust, etc. on the windshield. I'm also in NW Oregon so we get our share of rain to use wipers on. After a few years of that abuse, and 50k miles or so, they started to wear out so I replaced them. Rolled/totalled that rig shortly after.

I bought a truck that had Bosch Icons on it and they worked great. After a year I replaced them but should have stuck with the Icons again. I have never bought another set simply because I'm always trying the new new.

On my 4Runner I put a set of Rain-x non silicone wipers on and they were ok. Lasted one winter and I replaced with Scrubblades. The Scrubblades aren't as good as the PIAA in pure rain but they shine when it comes to getting bugs and crud off the windshield. The cleaning ability makes them a contender. I get about a year out of a set of Scrubblades and that is with a little abuse. I run them across ice to clear it, scrub bugs in hot weather, all the things you shouldn't do. I've run nothing but them since.

Latest part #'s for just the rubber refills:
Left: 85214-06140
Right: 85214-0E140
Rear: 85214-42040

But with my old 4R I used the Bosch Icons.
Thanks for these part numbers! Are you sure about the number for the Right blade, though? I can't find anything that says that's the correct one for a 4Runner front. Should it maybe be 85214-53090 or 85214-06130?

The wiper inserts part numbers have changed once or twice over the years. 85214-06130 and 85214-53090 are the older numbers. Hereís a snap of the Camelback Toyota online part store and from Toyota Parts Deal showing the current part number 85214-0E140.

In a year or two donít be surprised if the numbers change again.

I use Michelins, not from Costco, from where ever my wife found them on Amazon. They work great, but last about a year. Miami for reference.

I replaced the factory ones with rainex, those things were junk, then hopped into the michelins.
