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.

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.

Who makes the OEM wipers? Bosch doesn't make wipers for the T1 anymore according to their 2012/13 catalogue. Bought a pair for $50 at a no-brand store, but they squeak and jumps all over the place. But VW wants $120 for a pair, which is ridiculous.

A fully loaded Road Train in FNQ (Far North Queensland) changed my windscreen for me!! After that the clarity improvement was definitely noticeable.

Have you asked for the wiper rubber only kit? Takes ten minutes tops to slide the old rubbers out and the new rubbers in and the kit comes complete with new plastic end caps.

Unfortunately not, I have heard about this but I didn't realize it was from the dealer. And now the old wipers are thrashed.

Next time I will buy just the rubber. Good advice.

Here in the UK the kit costs about £15-20. I know your prices usually are, shall we say, just a little higher!!
