[Walmart] Autodrive wiper blade $4.97, all season $6.47, premium $8.97

16-28 in wiper blades. I’ve been using the cheapest conventional version in the summer. Decent quality for the price

I saw these yesterday and grabbed a set of all seasons and premium. I just replaced my vehicle so figured I'd try them both to see which is better.

I tried el cheapo wiper blades (I actually bought em at Ollies in Niagara Falls NY) - they streaked, they squeaked when it wasn't raining heavily and they had issues touching the windshield at the last few inches of the blade.
Never again.

Not bad in a pinch, thanks OP. I've always bought the Michelin ones at costco for the quality.

The Michelin works fairly well for me too, but I found that they do not last, I usually have to change them at the end of the season

Michelins from Costco are the worst quality i've encountered in my life. For 10$ i don't complain but they are terrible.
Paying full price for an item is a sin. :twisted:

That can be said for most 3rd party blades as they are 'universal fit' which means that they won't work particularly well on most cars. To make matters worse, I've found that most of these 3rd party blades don't last as long as the factory blades.

How do you dispose the wiper blades at the end of their life, like the metal rod?
If it's not free, it's too expensive...

Me too. I dabbled in a pair of Bosch blades, didn't notice a difference in wipe quality and they lasted about two years. They were $27 each, so twice the longevity for 2.7 times the price.....back to Costco.

I've used the Costco Michelin blades and found they are decent. I also found the OEM wiper blades to last a long time. I'm still using my OEM ones from Dec 2017 and they're still going strong. I'm guessing it makes a difference on how often you use them, where you park (garage or outdoors), etc.

I'm in a garage at home and covered parking while at work so they're not as exposed to the elements. I also find that a lot of times it's not the wipers that are the issue but a unclean/etched windshield. I use Aquapel on my windshield and wash my car at least every couple weeks so it's always clean. I use Stoner's glass cleaner, a razor blade, and isopropyl alcohol on the windshield prior to applying my Aquapel.

Agreed. When I was a novice, I was impressed by the Michelin brand. But later, I realized blades are super cheap from Rock Auto. Even economy line Bosch DirectConnect ($4) outperform the Michelins from Costco.

How is the premium one compared to the Michelin one at Costco?
