    My 2021 came with these wiper blades. Some reason everyone is saying the inserts aren't changeable. I removed the rubber inserts but can't seem to find a part number to replace them. I also ordered oem ones that came from toyota that do not look like the ones that came with my truck. I'm confused. Which ones are oem? And why am I able to remove these wiper inserts but not find any info on them online? Top picture is of both stock blades. Bottom pictures is insert removed from 1 blade. 20240515_220121.jpg

    Went through the same issue. Refills can't be used on OEM. That said there are / were two OEM versions. One was much better at around $60 the cheaper ($35) ones were Sightline which chatter. Ebay and Amazon are you friends for replacements. I went with the beam ones and they sometimes chatter when minimal rain but after one swipe they are ok and do not streak.

    I just use the oem blades on my 21. Great quality and price, originals lasted 3 years.

    Custom bug spat pattern hood, grill & bumper. Dead Live Oak leaf collection under hood, cowl and lower fenders. Beach sand custom floor covering.
    Yep. These are the same as I purchased for my 21 and they are working better than OEM.

    I've gone through RainX, Bosch Icon, and now I just tried Michelin's. The Michelins so far are excellent but it;s early - I want to see how they age. They claim to be made of silicon. They left a grey residue on my hands after install.,

    Between Bosch and RainX I definitely liked Bosch more. Felt like they lasted twice as long before streaking. I park the truck outside so it gets beat up by the elements.
