The best windshield wiper blades are long-lasting, built well and fit perfectly onto your car. We researched many of the newest and bestselling blades out there so that you can find the right pair. We hope they wipe the rain away and bring a smile back to your face! Think about it: you don't want to be caught in a downpour with bad wipers. Before we get started, here are the things you need to have on your checklist.
Count - While it’s not true for all cars, most wipers need to be replaced every 6 months. Some manufacturers offer single wipers to replace ones that are broken, others will offer you a 2-pack. We’ve got the count listed on every option!
Type - There are two primary types of wiper blades; conventional and beam wipers. The conventional design, with a rubber blade inserted into a bridge, is more common. The beam style has spring steel placed within the rubber. We'll identify which type it is.
Length - With certain makes and models, the driver and passenger-side wipers need to be the same size. In others, they need to be different lengths. The best-rated wiper blades come in both types, so we’ll tell you the length of your picks.
Material - Perhaps you’ve found great satisfaction with natural rubber wipers in the past. Or, you believe silicone is the way to go. Wiper material has a lot to do with how long the device will last and keep your windshield clean.
Weight - Factoring in the variety of materials used, and the length of wiper needed for a car in comparison to a truck, the wiper weight can vary. Take a quick glance at this category for the weight of the wipers in ounces.
Dimensions - A wiper may be rated top-of-the-line, but does it fit your truck? Take the dimensions here and check your manual to make sure you’re ordering the right wipers in the right material and size. Dimensions will be provided for every selection.
Now that you know how to choose, it’s time to size up the competition. The reviews are straight ahead. You’ll get all of the information you need to find wipers you’ll want to purchase over and over again. Here’s the deal: take your time and look around, but if you’re in a hurry, we have a great way to speed things up. Just take a look at our top pick and our budget pick. All right, let’s get started!
