The Importance of Winter Wiper Blades and Glass Treatment

Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades?

If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades are any good? At no time of the year is seeing out of your windshield more important, and more difficult, than in winter. 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. Arm your car or truck with Rain-X Glass Treatment and Rain-X wipers.

Rain-X Latitude 8-In-1 Wiper Blades are the ultimate blades for sleet and snow. Unlike conventional wiper blade frames, the Latitude's beam design won't collect ice and snow, which can freeze conventional frames to the point where the blade no longer contacts the windshield. With Latitude blades you won't have to interrupt your trip to clear ice and snow from wiper blade frames, only to have them freeze again. You can check the presentation of this product here:


Rain-X® - Latitude™ Wiper Blade


Another wiper blades Rain-X offers are Weatherbeater™ 22" Wiper Blade.

Rain-X® - Weatherbeater™ Wiper Blade


Also Rain-X develops a line of related glass care products. Because Rain-X Glass Treatment requires the glass surface to be perfectly clean, Rain-X X-treme Clean is the perfect glass cleaner. It removes dirt, grime, and bugs, plus build-up that other cleaners leave behind, from glass and clear plastic. Rain-X 2-In-1 Glass Cleaner not only cleans, it also applies a rain repellent to improve wet weather driving. Click here to see how exactly it works:

Rain-X® - Glass Treatment

And are you ready for the winter?

How did this ad for RainX get on this forum? I like to express opinions, but goes too far. Buy some ad space.

You do realize you are looking at the sponsoring vendor forum, so yes they did buy some ad space.

I'm a big believer in winter blades. They do a great job when the snow flies and the ice coats the glass. There are many good brands, shop your price and brand. I just questioned a brand ad posted in a forum not marked as commercial.

Thanks for being on the look out Mike. Yes, these forums have been here since Autoguide bought us up, but few posts have been made by our Supporting Vendors. These guys are different from the others that we have identified as Commercial Members.

The wipers on my car started to squeeze pretty badly, so I decided to bump our old topic again, because I realize that many drivers face the same issue. Well it's not really an issue and you can live with it, but why not spend a few bucks on the new ones.

I change my windscreens at around 60,000 miles.

It makes a HUGE difference to the clarity of vision.

People just don't realise how much they get abraided by day to day wear/grit/whatever.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
Read Wikipedia:
