The PIAA wiper blade is made of a high-quality silicone rubber compound that is resistant to all adverse climate conditions. In addition, the blade's activated silicone coating makes your windshield water-repellent, so rain beads-up and slips off the windshield. The wiper frames are aerodynamically designed to help keep the rubber on the glass at highway speeds, and to protect against corrosion, the frames are zinc-plated and then powder coated. Each frame is properly balanced to provide equal pressure on the windshield to prolong blade life; this design also gives you clearer, noise-free operation.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I actually use two 18 inch wipers instead of the 18/19 recommended combo. That way I only have to buy one size replacement blades when these wear out. The coverage on the passenger side is quite good despite being 1 inch shorter. In fact most wipers actually hang off the glass on passenger side anyways. After mounting these, and after a few days, this wiper almost completely contacted the windshield. I wanted to buy the bracketless type wipers for the Mini but they are actually more bulky, have a connector hump, and don't fit as nice (I tried the Bosch).
Silicone wipers are the only way to go. Bought these wipers to replace the brand new blades on my 2012 Kia Optima. I am totally addicted to the way that water beads up and blows off your windshield at highway speeds. I almost never turn on my wipers on the highway, and can see much better than those that have their normal blades running at high speed. Try Rainex liquid on your windshield. If you like that effect then buy these blades to get an even better effect that never has to be reapplied like Rainex
As almost everyone posts - these are expensive but seem to work well. I bought them on the strength of the other reviews. So far, I am well pleased and in Alabama when it rains, it many times pours. I am not too happy with the speed of delivery but I had researched the wiper replacement enough that these were the ones I wanted. When installing I made sure to read all the instructions carefully as I didn't want to mess up and take a chance on damaging the paint job or glass of my recently purchased Prius used Prius (with its pre-existing seriously torn wiper blades).
I know before I buy anything I read 20 or 30 reviews of the product and have found many posts that keep me from wasting my money or confirm my decision to purchase - many reviews answer my questions and give tips how to use the product more efficiently. To help others, the installation goes like this (and instructions are included with the purchase of the wiper):
