Not sure how many people use these, but Menards has them on sale for $12.50 each, usually 18 bucks or so.

Damnit, I just bought a different set 1 week ago for full price... That is one hell of a deal. I will pick up my old lady a set though, thanks for the heads up!

I've found the cheap brands work best to lasting quality. Rain x ones pretty much fall apart after a month of use.

I literally ran my last set for a year before the middle of the blade started coming apart and then it started sucking.

I hate the rain-x. I put them on my GF's car and they were awful. I made a thread on here when I needed new blades for my car and others said they'd had the same experience. I got some Bosch Icons and couldn't be happier.

However, that is a fantastic deal for the Rain-X, and IMO they are worth that much, so... yeah.

There is the problem, I went with the top dollar Icons...cost the same as the rainx ones, but wanted to try something different this time. Extremely pleased with them though.

ICONs FTMFW. I had nothing but complaints at Napa when I sold them.


Also windsheild maintainence is key to good working blades and longevity. And dont use them as ice scrappers either!

When you sold the rainx blades you had complaints? These icons work flawless so far. Evidently designed to give downforce to the blade when traveling at good speed so they dont vibrate and work like they should.

Repel's are not the same as the Latitudes. I believe they are a much lower quality blade...

I REALLY wish someone made a GOOD beam-style blade with replacements. All of this advancement in car shit and wiper blades still either suck or require expensive replacements.

Have had the latitude, icon and many others. The only one I've been happy with was the Michelin stealth.
