Never had problems with this set I have currently.
The 1st version though, didn't last long enough for the price pain imo.

Michelin's stealth always last like two years for me. I wash my car every weekend and put a drop of mothers in the wash bottle then dilute it.

Ordered these:

since its near impossible to find non chrome ones in this country.

I finally got around to installing a pair of Bosch aero twin wipers this week, I'm impressed, they are at least as good as the michelin stealths I had on for a year and 6mths. I never experienced skipping with the michelins like some of you guys though.

My only issue with the michelins is that they are made by pylon...I'd prefer if I paid a premium for something not made by a budget brand...I mean, 75 bux isnt necessarily a premium, but i wouldnt pay that much for pylons...

Pylon Wiper Blades Work decent for me....and cheap enough to replace every year
RainX and Formula 21 helps it last for 2yrs

I think its the windscreen that contributes to the skipping. Skipped and drove me crazy on my NZE, then on the Tucson it worked great! Guess cause the van windscreen more flat.

I wonder if is cuz how my 21yr old windscreen have millions of tiny pits on it from road dirt blasting it every day.
Driving towards the sun it looks like it's really dirty but it's actually quite clean, save for the pits. It doesn't feel rough to the touch however.

Tried the Asuki wiper blades recently, it uses a much softer rubber than the pylon blades. Works fine so far.
I know someone with a delivery vehicle, doing significant driving weekly, with Asuki wiper blades installed about a year now, and they are holding up. That's why i decided to give them a try.

Anyone ever realise any aero blades are prepackaged for left hand drive vehicles? Even suppliers dont realise this. You have to turn the centre clip around

interesting about the michelin frameless review. the set on my van crossed 3 years. there is one streak on the blade on the passenger side. It doesnt skip but would make noise if there's grease on the glass....usually fixed with some detergent.

That's cool, I'm not ready to change my blades yet, probably closer to Christmas I will. What's the price if the Bosch though?

Ac delco wiper blades are the best 75$ for 1 side and it comes with multiple fittings and works great
