    I use Trico Wiper Blades on my Tundra.
    I also treat the windows with Aquapel.
    No problems...

    Agree. Best stock wiper blades I’ve ever had on a new vehicle.

    This ^^^. And by OEM, I mean NOT the Sightlines (not sure if I spelled that correct) that the Toyota dealership has on the floor in the parts department. I'm talking go to the OEM parts diagram and order those blades. I just replaced my off-the-dealer lot OEM's after 4 years with the true OEM's. Unprecedented blade performance. I got the replacements like a year and a half ago (cuz I kept saying "they've got to start going bad. They've got to start going bad." But didn't) from Roman and they were only $24 a blade.

    My 2019 OEM blade started leaving streaks, but I don't see any damage.

    Could it be the sliding tension clips have been moved out of original place? I slid them around and tried different configurations, but can't get my blades to function streak free.

    I'll be buying BOSCH ICON blades if I can't figure out the OEM ones soon.

    I use RainX, RainX Latitude, RainX washer fluid. All work well. Most of the time in heavy rain at the speed limit don’t even need the wipers on, just sheds away.

    I'm never getting rain x again, they can't handle winter conditions here in the mtns of CO for shit. 2 months and they're super streaky, and I don't even make them go over ice build up either

    I had OEM blades until my dumbass pulled it up trying to scrape the ice off my windshield and broke it. Then got Napa brand which are terrible. Anyone have the part number for the OEM blades?

    I am OCD with wiper blades and I am stuck on any with the one piece, plastic, support rib. I can't do any of them that has the metal frame for support. The two brands that I like the most are Rain-X and Bosch. I have tried other brands with acceptable results. For me, the design comes before the name with wipers.

    We are in lockdown, but if there is no lineup at CanadianTire on my way home today, I'm going to pick a set up.

    I have only heard good things about them. I was searching the forum a few weeks ago when mine started acting up and Bosch Icon kept coming up.

    You won't regret it. The Woman has been bugging me to put them on her car now too. Chinadian Tire is always out of stock in her car's size though.

    No matter what I have tried, they all seem to lift at any speed over 65-70 mph. May have to try going back to OEM.

    I've used both the OEM and Sightlines and neither one was worth a crap out of the box. I blame it on the "beam" style wipers we're forced to use now instead of the old style where you could replace the "refills" (rubber part only). On my wife's 2004 Sienna, I replace the refills every year or so and they wipe so much more cleanly than my '18 Tundra ever has. So not only do we have inferior wiping, but we get to pay 2-3 times as much every time we need to replace them. Maybe I should put this in "What Makes You Angry?"? :notsure:

    Yeah, our '05 Sienna had factory wiper blades in it for 10+years. When I did service, the local garage would swap out rubber and they were like new again.

    I’ve tried all the brands and price points and nothing seems to pay for itself. So I buy whatever Costco is selling when they are on sale. Keep a supply in the garage and when one craps out, I replace it. At $5 each, I don’t care how long they last
