    PIAA Wiper Blades

    Which ones do I buy?

    I searched and everyone just says the silicone ones. My question is which silicone ones? The Super Silicone or The Super Sporza Silicone?

    There is only a $2 difference. So I might just go with the Sporza's. If I can save the $2 though I will lol.

    Sooooooooo, those of you who use the PIAA's which ones do you use?

    On my WRX I have the PIAA Super Silicone, and they work really well. Best wipers I'd ever used.

    Until...

    On my OBXT I have the PIAA Si-Tech Silicone flat wiper blades. These are now the best wipers I've ever used!

    I thought about getting the flat ones, but I heard they don't work well with our windshields for some reason.

    I don't know why they wouldn't. Streak-free for me at highway speeds.

    Let us know how it goes. I'm in the market for something better than OEM also.

    I'm not sure about the PIAAs, but I like the Bosch Evolutions on my car. They were only $12 apiece at NAPA, and are the molded kind that apply even pressure across the blade. They've held up great in our wet Oregon weather, no streaking, and totally silent.

    I've used OEM, Rain-X Latitude, Bosch Icons, and now PIAA Super Sporza Silicone / Super Silicone. Of the four, I like the PIAAs best. I am interested to try the newer PIAAs when my current ones go out...

    I ordered the Si-Tech last night. I should get them on Friday. I'll be sure to post up a review after a few weeks of use!

    So today was the first day it has rained since I put the blades on.

    I am thoroughly impressed by these blades. There is zero noise on the highway or in the city. The pre-use treatment was very easy to put on and has a noticeable effect. The water just falls off! I even put some on my side-view mirrors and nothing stays on them now.

    I highly recommend these blades and will never buy another brand!

    I knew you'd like 'em! Be careful when it ices up though. You don't want to tear those expensive blades!
