PostSubject: Impressed with RainX Lattitude wipers...   Mon Oct 29, 2012 5:07 pm

I have been looking for a good wiper blade for years. Like since I've been driving. I am totally anal about changing them out, too. One streak and they're history... Anyways, I've tried a few, if not all, of the "new tech" flexible blade ones over the years with much unimpressedness... But yesterday I bought a set of these RainX Lattitudes for the slut. Holy crap. They work! No chatter, no lifting off the windshield above 60mph! IMPRESSED!!!! I thought I had tried them all, but these mo-fo's work the balls! Even stayed on the windshield at 75-80MPH driving through pouring rain during the hurricane!!! And I had them on intermittent, didn't even need low speed. Wow. lol!

I can't wait to try em on the Marshmallow!

Give em a shot. They're worth the extra money. And right now, they are half off or 8 bucks off the second blade at autozone and advance, respectively. I was pissed at spending the 30 bucks for the pair yesterday, but it turns out that it's the best 30 bucks that I've spent on a car in a while. Yeah, seriously, they're THAT good! cheers

I'll have to go get some! I'm picky about that stuff too. The ones on the Caprice were lifting and grabbing across the glass weeks after I replaced the blades...the only ones that "work" are the ones on the Tahoe, and they aren't even great.

I had a set on the Caprice. Loved em. Bought a set for the VW, they sucked. I'll be sticking with the Bosch Icon's.

My "new" Grand Marquis came with a set, and yes, they're the best blades ever ever.

I have used them ever since my 08 Silverado came with a similar set from the factory. I like being able to use them year around, and they hold to the windshield since they have a built in air foil.

Nope. Straight up. Wax buildup and grime on the windshield and all... Wink

Ya, thats what I did cuz conditions werent right to apply.
I think theyre good too, dont know how they'll hold up in the winter.
I seem to break everything but those god awful winter blades.
You know...
improperly cleared windshield...wiper frozen to glass...always some stupid error.
