Keeping your windshield clear is a necessity for everyday visibility, but the quality of your wiper blades is even more important in inclement weather. Old or damaged blades may not be up to the task of keeping your line of sight clear during a heavy spring downpour. When it comes to choosing new blades, give careful attention to performance.
Rubber that has hardened or cracked, due to
exposure to the elements or debris, leaving
bands of water.
A rubber edge that has rounded or split, due
to age or physical damage, will smear water.
This smearing causes unwiped/or cloudy areas.
Rubber that has developed a permanent set
or curve, usually due to exposure to
extremes in temperature, causing the blade
to skip or vibrate.
Rubber that has become old, worn or inferior
does not move quietly across the glass.
