I seldom buy the entire blades anymore. Autozone sells the rubber blade only, in different lengths. Quick and easy to slide out the old one and slide in the new one. Much cheaper.

I just ordered two AutoTex 78-32 32" wiper blades from Amazon at $29.99 each! Not happy about that but that's the best deal I could find. The Trico 67-321 also fits but they were a couple of dollars higher. O'Reillys Auto Parts wanted about $35 each for the Trico!

TJ,
Yep. Valid argument regarding wiper strength.
AFTER ALL, I have 28" blades on my 2012 Dodge minivan, and it uses 9mm arms. So, no problems swinging that blade with 9mm -- Chrysler would have made the change long ago if wipers had snapped.
