Forgot wiper blades

Hi all, thought I covered everything but seems I forgot wiper blades. What's on there now measures 30 inches. All I can find is 32 inches for it. Possibly the previous owner put on the wrong size.
It's a 2007 Bay Star 2901. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful.

I installed 28" blades instead of 32'',like it very much. It's easier on the
wiper motor also. Still plenty of visibility.

Hi Sueca,
siggyd has a good point. Bigger is not always better. For me, I install the same size the coach came with.

Not only are the 28" blades easier on the wiper motor but they are also easier on the wallet and easier to find.

I can't see that 2" top and bottom on the blades will make much of a difference on the wiper motor

I bought a new set here: TRU Vision TV6-32 32" Heavy Duty Wiper Blade

At $26 each they are an exact replacement.

My original blades were 32 inch. After replacing the entire wiper system for the second time, 3rd generation I still had 32 inch blades but they were lighter and about 1/2 in wide rather than about 3/4 inch. The newest generation, all done by factory by the way, allow me to buy regular blades available literally everywhere. Given that most places only go up to 28 inch blades I tried the 28 inch blades and I guarantee I nor anyone else will ever miss the 2 " at the ends of the blade. Additionally they are lighter and just work easier and better than the heavier blades.

Be careful when moving from 30+ to 28. Some "J" hook 30+ have are wider and 28s may not work. Do not ask how I know!
