Does it matter what wiper blades I buy?

The optimal wiper blade size is determined by the manufacturer and selected for proper fit to clear as much of the windshield as possible.

Are expensive wipers worth it?
Expensive wiper blades have a lower maintenance cost It may not be too much if it happens once, but if this situation repeats several times in the space of a few months, then your bank account may run dry. Purchasing high-quality wiper blades may cost you a great deal, but you would not be replacing them any time soon.
How do I know what kind of windshield wipers I need?
Lift each wiper arm off the glass and run your finger along its rubber edge. If the rubber is rigid or chipped, or produces nonstop streaking, you need new wipers. If the wipers are in decent physical condition but not clearing the windshield effectively, try cleaning them.
Are silicone wiper blades better than rubber?
Silicone performs better than rubber right out of the box, and the wiper leaves a water-repellent hydrophobic layer on the windshield over time. The main advantage of silicone wiper blades is durability measured in years instead of months; they can last four times as long as conventional rubber blades.
What happens if you use the wrong size wiper blade?
Incorrectly wiper adapter installation can cause the blade to fall off during driving. Also, a loose connection can cause faulty performance. If you install the wrong wiper blade size on your vehicle, you may experience chattering, skipping, or gapping in areas.
Which wiper blades last the longest?
Silicone blades have a longer life, perhaps even over a year, even with intensive use, but ordinary rubber blades have a shorter life and need to be hardened with halogen. Rubber sheets harden with halogen and rubber wiper blades and tend to last a little longer.
Why are wiper blades so expensive?
Owner Rusty Escandell agrees and has been using cheap wiper blades for many years, which he often replaces for good performance. Expensive wiper blades wear out faster than cheap ones so that they can be replaced more often in the long run.

Does Rainx damage wipers?
Rain – X, like any chemical that sticks around, has a residual film which can attract dust and debris. When you used your wipers on this chemical it allowed everything that has been accumulating on your wiper blades to clump up and cause poor performance.
How long should windshield wipers last?
It is recommended that you change your wiper blades every 6-12 months. Windshield wipers are made from rubber which is degradable, and becomes less effective over time. You should get into the habit of checking your wipers regularly and know what signs to look out for as they begin to wear out.
