Exclamation wiper blade

Hey, just wondering what is the longest wiper blade that fits on this? The stock wiper blades are pretty horrible lol they always leave a streak right in front of your visual field.

If the existing blade is doing a bad job of wiping your visual field then a longer blade isn't going to necessarily wipe the same area any better.

How old are your blades? Have you tried cleaning them with an alcohol swab or one of those pre-moistened towelettes?

I tend to agree with the factory blades. They definitely leave a good few lines as it passes through both sides actually.
As Preppie suggested, I cleaned them off with some of those alcohol wipe packets every time I washed the car.
For the summer it wasn't a huge issue but for winter they're definitely getting changed.
Longer blades won't do anything. Just get better quality.

Or we can jack these off of a Merc...
(although I'd worry about them getting plugged in the arm)

Try one of these:

Sorry about the massive URL, but apparently these work rather well.
