Wiper Blades are Your Best Friends for a Rainy Day.

Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Of course, if the fastest wiper setting still makes you strain to see, you need to order wiper blades right here today. But unless they let you see very clearly, your wipers are more worn than you think. Ideally, they should be replaced every 6 months.



What are the signs of worn wiper blades? If they chatter up and down or squeak, that's caused by friction from dried, hardened rubber. When they streak without twigs and seeds lodged underneath, the blade has become pockmarked from salt, ice, or being yanked free of ice. And if you see overall smearing, the rubber blade has dried and warped causing uneven wear and improper pressure against the glass.



At CARiD, we aim to provide our customers with the finest Windshield Wiper Blades the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Rain-X, Michelin Wiper Blades, TRICO, Bosch the Windshield Wiper Blades we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability. Each of the Windshield Wiper Blades is skillfully engineered by the country's most experienced professionals and then crafted from premium materials to ensure quality that is second to none. Manufactured to satisfy even the most discerning aficionados, the Windshield Wiper Blades that we stock are ready to reveal the true nature of your vehicle.



Whichever wiper blade set you choose, you'll get longer life out of them by wiping more intermittently, and Rain-X exterior Glass Treatment allows you to do that. The liquid glass treatment works by penetrating and sealing microscopic glass pores with a hydrophobic coating to prevent water, sleet, and snow from sticking to the glass surface. Instead of naturally smearing all over upon impact, rain drops bead up and roll off leaving much of your glass area unobscured. Rain-X Glass Treatment applies easily with a dry cloth using firm, circular motion – then the final haze removes with a dry cloth or by washing with water. Reapply to ensure complete and uniform coverage. Rain-X also works well on shower doors and bathroom mirrors in your home. Rain-X typically lasts 3 months between applications.

Do you have any specific recommendations for our cars? 02-07 Impreza models have trouble with a lot of these newer "single mount" blades due to the substantial angle on the passenger side lower corner. They don't seem to follow the glass enough and end up missing contact in that region. I need new wiper blades but I have yet to find any good ones that cover my whole windshield.

I'm pretty sure I have a set of lattitudes on my 10 wrx, and they work beautifully.

Is there a shipping charge on your wiper blades? I don't see one but I need to know for price comparison.
