so far i've been really impressed with the good job my windshield wipers do with factory blades - of course, mfr date for mine is 9/09 so the blades might not do so well after they age - in any case, i don't plan on changing the style blade i use until the current ones give up -
Just replaced the factory front wipers last week with the rain-x contour type wipers, way better, but then again new wipers are always great aren't they. I too wondered about the rear. I'm thinking that a refill is the only fix for those. What size is it like less then 12"/.
