Winter Wiper Blades?

Old man winter is here in SW Ohio, I'm curious on what brand of windshield wiper blades others truck owners are using on their trucks in the winter weather.

I just put on RainX blades. Wasn't happy with the Bosch Evolutions I had before, but the Bosch Micro Edge before those were awesome.

for better clearing action...buy a smaller blade....the smaller blade will apply more pressure on to the window.

When I go 4 wheeling..I have 14" blades I put on.

New blades or not, you have to take care of them. Do not run your wipers without scraping your windows. The ice will tear up blades faster than anything

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
