$60.00 per blade ain't bad... seeing it sells for around $7-9US each.

SR has them on his civic, you should ask him how they work.

i still have on pylons, even though i find they're too hard of a rubber on the glass.. they (pylon) give a skipping action and the annoying noise when the glass is getting dry with slight water on it.

venum, PM me the place where has the michelin wipers, if i get those i'll get rid of the pylon.

bleedingfreak uses them and highly recommends them.

$60 a pop isn't bad compared to OEM prices. If they can perform as good as OEM, I wouldn't mind purchasing a pair at all. Post where you sourcing them man.

New stock item

the only place I have seen them

I do not use Pylon - they are too hard, especially when it's only a slight bit of water on the glass just as equipped2ripp said

HS Aerodyne works wonderfully, but I can't seem to get any 24" in those

dunno if they come in 24"

wonder if the Michelin's are silicone blades

the pylons arent bad except for the skipping. they work great under high speeds too :fadein:

the HS aerodyne worked good as well for the first 6 or so weeks. then it just got worse. the pylons were cheaper then the HS.

i've never priced OE wipers, but at $60 a blade for Michelin, that isnt bad if i performs well.

michelin wiper blades are da bomb


but mostpeople done take care of thier wiper blades to start with


every month you should clean your blades with some rubbing aclohol to remove the glaze on it and then use some armoral or silcone spray to keep the rubber soft

rainX is a must!

here's how i handle it:
-rain science glass scrub cleaner (u can use toothpaste instead)
-rain science version of rainX ... or rainX... wasnt getting rainx locally fuh a while

wipers... i use a brand called rainbox. got a sixteen and a 20" in a box for about 40 dollars i think. they wipe good and las long, not too hard.

i change wipers every 3 to 4 months anyway.

I find the Pylons work well once you clean them and maintain them frequently enough. I'll give the Michelin's a try next rounds.

HS works fine for me

good for at least 6 months +

I use them combined with Castrol Accuvision

and they do rust

but for $30.00 per blade - thaz real good

bought some Tovi for the GF car, got those in 24", think was $30.00 per blade

will monitor how they work

get my Michelin blades from the same place I get my other stuff
TJ's Auto Supplies in Garden Village, Arouca.

$50.00 for one up to about 20", after that is $55.00-$60.00

Wipes clear, no streaks, no noise. Well worth it IMO
