i find the OE blades to be the best. they fit better, and last pretty good. some stuff can't be avoided. your windshield is covered in debris. blade like it's on sandpaper . peeling it off a frozen windshield doesn't help it last either. blades on my tundra last a few years, my girlfriend's jetta will start chattering before long even with OE blades .

Bosch has a style called "Snow Driver" now that I really like.

Can't beat Rock Auto on the price. Think I paid $5-6 each.

I run the Motorcraft brand on everything. They are the Beam style and are $22 bucks a pair and last forever.

Trico owns Anco now, so there's that. I sell the old school Trico steel blades for 9.99 ea installed and the bosch beam blades for 12.99 installed. I agree that the Big Box stores are hosing everyone. I've grown up in and currently own a small independent auto parts store. As much as I hate to say it, The Bezo's and 5 middle eastern guys in Philly (rock auto) are going to bury my business. Not fun to read your guys experiences with Napa and such, but my business community hasn't helped itself with the advent of the big box, idiot trained worker stores. Such is the way of the world these days. The previously mentioned blades work just as good as any of there top of line blades, so don't spend any big bucks on them.
*If you live in a small rural town take a good look at main street, in 10 years it'll be bulldozed except for the pizza joints, gas stations and bars.

Couldn't agree more. A buddy of mine recently had to close his retail end of the business due to no longer being able to compete with the big box guys that kept coming into his area.
