    start at topcashback for 10% CB



  • Got some of these on clearance at our local Kmart before they shut down, and they’re on our two cars now. They work ok, however, they are the squeakiest blades I’ve ever had! Just saying. Open to any tips on quieting them down…



  • per my handle… formerly for 20 years owned an auto diagnostic center in NJ. You get what you pay for in the auto biz. never heard of Windex making wipers. Actually some Chinese co. probably stole the name. As the previous poster mentioned… they squeak. That’s because the rubber is cheap. Would never last a year in the cold/ice and now of the northern states. The freeze thaw cycle will kill them in months. Maybe ok for south and west. But I am particular with my cars. Cant live with squeaks!! I use and sold only top blades from Bosch/Trico.

    So you have zero experience with Windex wiper blades then?



  • @ctcarl never heard of them making blades. Just bought tric oynx blades at autozone 2 weeks ago on sale for 12-15.00 each. best blades ever, and no squeaks

    If I were going to pay more for Trico blades, I’d want the Ultra. Made in the USA, and all that: http://www.tricoproducts.com/Drivers/WiperProducts/PremiumPerformance/Ultra

    You did know that the Onyx is made in China, right?

    Picked up a set yesterday. Thanks, Mistercheap!

    Please note that if you want one-piece, “frameless”, or “beam”-style blades, you need to choose "Select Perform". The "Balance" model looks like a beam blade, and is marketed as a “hybrid”, which “combines traditional wiper blade and beam wiper blade elements”.

    I guess that’s true, in that it looks like a beam blade from five feet away, but is physically a traditional blade, with plenty of joints, hinges, and gaps for snow and ice to pack into.

    If anyone is curious, Windex blades are manufactured in China under license from S.C. Johnson, Inc., by Winplus North America, Inc.

    Out of the three options: Windex Distinct, Balance, or Exceptional Performance, which one are you guys getting? Maybe cheapest is just as good? I live in the West and it doesn’t rain all too much here.
