    Default Wiper Blades (Rain-X vs Michelin)

    Seeing if anyone has a preference of one over the other. I friend of mine has the Michelin wipers and says he really likes them, however i have heard really good reviews about the rain-x brand.

    I am assuming you basically cant go wrong with either. But just wondering if one is favored over the other.

    I bought a pair of Michelins and hated them, skipped on the windshield. Very noisey. Haven't tried Rain-X brand.. I always use Anco

    Been using the Michelin's for some time but recently tried a pair of the Rain X. With out a doubt, the Rain X are much better, IMO.

    Never tried Michelin, but the rain-x I used to sell at the Jiffy Lube I worked at were pretty sweet. 1 pair lasted me almost a year.

    I have the bosch Icons on my car and truck and love them a lot. I will say there is something inherently wrong with the design of the Chevy glass though, because certain spots always seem to miss or streak.

    I have had a set on my car for about 2 years (well two full summers) and a tick over a year since i got them on the truck.

    Bosch are my favorite by far, but they cost just about as much as the one's you get from the Chevy dealer. I recently bought a pair of the Rain-X silicone style one's, but I haven't put them on my truck yet. Will let you know when I put them on, but I paid $27 for those Rain-X wipers do I hope there worth it.

    The Bosch Icons are very similar to the Rain X Lattitudes and worth every penny. I don't know what blades you would get at the dealer, but these are by far better.
