Silicone Wiper Refill 26"(650Mm)
The wiper insert of all PIAA wiper blades is made of silicone rubber, which ensures greater visibility by coating the windshield with silicone to promote continuous water beading in inclement weather.
Water beads up into droplets at low speeds that are easily removed by ordinary wiping. The silicone coating also reduces drag and eliminates annoying and inefficient chattering, regardless of the shape of the windshield to provide greater comfort for both driver and passenger. And the best part:
PIAA Silicone Wiper Refills reapply the silicone coating every time the wipers are used. Making your wiper blades maintain a sharp, clean edge and offer better resistance to all climates (heat, ozone, ultra-violet) -- clearly out performing the industry standard rubber insert with our legendary durability, as well.
PIAA Silicone wiper refills are designed to fit into PIAA wiper blades. Not all OEM wiper blades will accept our Silicone refills, please measure your wiper claw width before purchasing.
These are probably the best wipers out there. Bosch icons don't come close to the quiteness of these and the silicone coating on the windshield is second to none. However using them in cold icy weather seems to strip the outer layer of these so they won't last through a winter in new condition. I think it's still worthwhile but your mileage may vary.
The PIAA silicone wiper blades are the best wipers I've every used on a car. They leave a thin hydrophobic film of silicone on your windshield that works like Rain-X, only better because it doesn't rub off and create lines that you have to clean off. And after you've used them for awhile, you don't even need to turn the wipers on over 40 miles an hour.
So far it meets expectations - quiet and efficient operation. I hope that this will last longer than the ones that came with my car.
This is the second car I have used these blades on. They are the best wiper blades that I have ever used. The silicon sloves the problem of when you use rain x but are not going fast enough for it to work. You don't want to use your wipers becaus you don't want to wear it off. These wiper blades give you the best of both worlds.
