    Wow...2 adapter parts and changing an "A14" to an "A13" and the Goodyear Costco wipers are on her. Ar $4.99 on sale worth a shot.

    Although, initially the "26" on the driver looks good, the "22" recommended for the passenger looks short...leaving a gap at the bottom and not covering the top well. Might also be the design of the adapter, too. Other brands may not have that issue...:rolleyes:

    Didn't think my simple question would spark so many comments! Love this site. ANOTHER good reason to buy a Toyota!

    The dealer told me the passenger should be 24" on a 2017 and I measured mine and it is 24"

    Just put a pair of Costco Goodyear's on the night before I left for elk camp. Bad decision! On my 2015 Tundra the Goodyear's float at highway speeds, a total PITA. I'm on this website right now looking for a replacement.....

    Have to say the Goodyear Costco wipers have been less than stellar. They fall into "ok." Worth the $5.00 paid, but not much more. Probably will switch back to Bosch (which I had on other vehicles) in the spring...or when they are on sale.

    don't give up on Costco goodyear wipers. some cars including Tundra are maybe finicky due to the aerodynamics, etc.

    I have tried the Costco wipers on 2 different mid size SUVs and they are perfect. VERY good wipers to the point that I bought spares for each car in case Costco stops carrying them ... u know how Costco is! but for some reason Tundra is special. I have also bought wipers from auto parts that didn't want to stay on at higher speeds!

    I have used rain-x wipers for years! I hate stock wipers and tried some other brands but never as good as rain-x wipers.

    I have one rain-x and one Bosch on my wife’s Sequoia. (The store didn’t have both sizes in either brand when I got them.) The Bosch seems to be superior.

    I've used both Bosch and Rain-X and they both work well. I also use the Rain-X washer fluid in my tank. When it rains here in Florida.....It comes down in buckets! I'm talking 3-5 inches an hour. Most of the time the Rain-X alone handles it and I don't need the wipers. When I do use the wipers, it's clear as a bell. The Tundra's come with heaters in the windshield that come on when the temp is at or below freezing. It heats the windshield in the area of the wipers to get them un-stuck before use.

    Had this exact same experience on my 2015 this past weekend. The passenger side works ok but the driver side seems to lift up at highway speed, leaving a huge smear right in my line of sight. Not a good feeling at all. Will try the Rain-X blades next.

    Your local dealer should sell replacement wiper INSERTS for your stock wiper blades. You’ll pull the insert apart and re-install the new insert.

    My stock blades work fine. Never had any problems. I use the RainX cleaner and if used regular it works pretty much as well as full treatment. On my Tacoma the stock inserts worked best. Bosch's were terrible. For some reason local dealer quit stocking them and wanted me to order 10. I hate the fact that everyone but dealers only stock the whole blade assembly. In the old days you could just buy inserts almost anywhere.

    Installed Trico flex wipers a week ago. Seem to be working good so far. Much better than the Goodyear hybrids.

    Installed the Bosch Icons today, 1000% improvement over the stock ones that I should have replaced a year ago.

    (Yeah I waited until it was raining to replace them, and yes I let the nice gentleman at autozone walk outside to do it for me since they cost damn near $60 after tax!)

    I've been satisfied with the Valeo 900 Ultimate series. No streaking or chatter. I use either RainX or Prestone washer fluid combined with 16 oz or so of 90% isopropyl alcohol.

    Halfway through and saw this was 2 months old. My blades got to go. Just thought they were worn since its a 2014, which they probably are. Used the Icons before and def worth the money. Last used were Michelin Stealth and they were good as well.

    If you get Bosch Icon blades, be sure to get the OEM version. The others won't work. I avoid Rain-X products. Depending on the temp and humidity, sometimes the wipers can't move fasr enough to keep the windshield clear of fog.
