Motorcraft from the dealer. Not much price difference and I know they fit.

I used to run the Costco wipers when they were the beam type, but when they switched to the "hybrid" which just appears to me to be a regular wiper with a solid cover over it to make it look like a beam type. I bought one set and used them about a month before getting rid of them.

The last ones I got were the Rain-X Latitude 2 n 1 (they were on sale) and have been very happy with them. No streaking, chatter, or lifting at higher speeds. Supposedly, they transfer Rain-X coating from the blades to the windshield. These are on my wife's van that is new to us and I haven't coated the windshield before. I do notice the water beading up as if it has been coated so I guess it works to a degree.

Have had them about 4 months so still a little early for a final thumbs up, but so far so good.

X2 Currently they have a Michelin model that works well for me.

Rain-X washer fluid and whatever blade you want to buy. With the rain-x washer fluid you can run down the highway in a heavy rain without any wipers running.

Now that would be interesting. I have used just rain x and it is great but never knew they had a fluid wash

I've heard reports of the RainX washer fluid clogging the nozzles on the hood. Reverting back to regular fluid usually clears it. I use the old fashioned RainX product that requires elbow grease during the application. After that, it doesn't matter what wipers are on the vehicle. I rarely have to turn them on when on the interstate regardless of sprinkle or downpour.

The Rain-X wipers coat the windshield nicely when they are new and you get nice beads of water but it wears off pretty quickly and they are just normal wipers.... still good but the early stages are the best for sure.

Ditto.

Been doing the RainX treatment since the late 80s. A bottle typically last 3 years or longer.
