Re: Windshield wiper reccomendation?

Wow, what a difference a blade makes!
Thunder storms from former hurricane Dolores off of Baja gave me a reason to hit Costco for new tires for the wife and new 26" Goodyear wiper blades for me! Had to wait until the storm passed to swap them out, but after a little monkeying around got the new blades installed.
Very impressed with the extra three inches top and bottom compared to the stock 20" blades. My wind shield is now as squeegee clean as it is when the winshield cleaner kids get through with it at the border.
Thanks for all the input everybody, well worth the time to post the question as opposed to guessing at the wiper isle at Pep Boys. (Not to mention the $10 or so I saved buying from Costco!)

Test test test, this is where the signature goes

Re: Windshield wiper reccomendation?

I found these sizes to be an improvement over the stock size:

26"drivers, 24" pass.

Pep Boys will install you wipers for free. Does Costco?

No, but where's the satisfaction in having someone else do it?

Re: Windshield wiper reccomendation?

I run two 17 inch wiper blades, cheapest possible. Because I use so much RainX they hardly ever get used.
Also the smaller the blades the less wear on the wiper assembly.

And had three other E350s...

I just put 26" blades on both sides and would have to agree that a 24" would have fit a little better on the passenger side (unless somebody makes a 25"?) I just cut a little bit off the outer edge and that is probably enough, anymore and it will be into the metal part. Now when is this "El Nino" supposed to hit so I can test these things out?
