Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades?

If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades are any good? At no time of the year is seeing out of your windshield more important, and more difficult, than in winter. Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Arm your car or truck with Rain-X Glass Treatment and Rain-X wipers.

Rain-X Latitude 8-In-1 Wiper Blades are the ultimate blades for sleet and snow. Unlike conventional wiper blade frames, the Latitude's beam design won't collect ice and snow, which can freeze conventional frames to the point where the blade no longer contacts the windshield. With Latitude blades you won't have to interrupt your trip to clear ice and snow from wiper blade frames, only to have them freeze again.

Another wiper blades Rain-X offers are Weatherbeater™ 22" Wiper Blade.

Also Rain-X develops a line of related glass care products. Because Rain-X Glass Treatment requires the glass surface to be perfectly clean, Rain-X X-treme Clean is the perfect glass cleaner. It removes dirt, grime, and bugs, plus build-up that other cleaners leave behind, from glass and clear plastic. Rain-X 2-In-1 Glass Cleaner not only cleans, it also applies a rain repellent to improve wet weather driving. Click here to see how exactly it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTpfaxI5DSI

I've used the RAIN-X treatment on my car quite a few times and I think it's great! BUT, I have a set of LATITUDE wipers on my FX and they're crap for cold weather... It must be the rubber compound, because they're not very old, but every time the weather gets a little cold (fall weather and still well above freezing) they suck... but in the summer time when the weather is warm, they work awesome again...

Bosch ICONs have been the best wiper I've used so far, but I still like to experiment. I'll be swapping a new set on my FX fairly soon...

DatMan, thanks for sharing your experience with us. Sorry to hear that you have problems with the wipers, usually there are no issues with them. You just need to clean the rubber part with an alcohol pad once in a while and it keeps them streak free.

I'll give that a try. Only weird thing is that with the weather going up and down so much lately, and without doing anything to the wipers, they just work better when it's warm (over 20C) than when the temperature drops...

DatMan, everything depends on weather and environmental conditions. I'm sure that they will work just great, we all are using Rain-X here at CARiD. However, let me know if you have any other questions.
