Windshield Wiper Blades

So I need to replace the wiper blades and I'm just looking for some suggestions on brands.

I don't remember what brand I bought last time but the fitment is ehhh and they make noise occasionally that's irritating.

From what I've seen the two biggest suggestions have been Bosch Icons and RainX Latitudes.

I've got the Bosch Icons on my '13 GT. Best blades I've ever used. Be sure to pay attention not just to the length, but the code as to which side they are designed for. Bosch contours them differently for the driver vs. passenger sides.

I love Mevo - Joey I have the Rain X on my Wrangler and they're ridiculous! Highly recommended them! I'm in the process of trying to have them brought on here as well!

Aw man, when I saw this post that got me thinking of the Bosh Evolution OE blades I had before. The driver side one kept leaving a massive streak right in front of my line of sight looking at the road. Now I know why. After 4 or 5 returns I gave up

I just get them from the dealer, they work good enough.

Maybe on older cars, but newer 2011+ mustangs can't use the cheap blades at all. The only blades these cars take are atleast $15-$20 each.

There are a variety of blades that fit on Rockauto as low as $1.80 a wiper. Yes you have to pay shipping, it's still going to wind up at about $10 all told, maybe $15 if you go up to the $4/blade wipers.

Not for this car you won't. The blades are long, sprung type and have distinctive mounts. I used the icons in or size to replace the crap factory stuff that chatterd like a 68 mustang in anything other than full downpour.

Lol either way, put on some Bosch Icons. They fit so much better than the brand I bought before and feel sturdy.

No rain or snow in the forecast yet so we shall see how well they perform.
