Any kind is good, the PIAA polyurethane wiper blades are the best IMHO.

advantages of poly:

No noise
Coats windshield w/ some substance that makes water bead better
lasts longer
and many others

I got those windshield wipers, PIAA but i got the Carbon Fiber ones. They look awesome too with the car. I mean they are pretty pricy though like 30 bucks a wiper. I recommend these![/quote]

where did you get them from? and what part of pa do you live?

nope, no need to...YET.
I just know from experience...My parents 4Runner went through 6 sets in 2 years (OEM TOYOTA), then we saw the PIAA's in the Performance Products Catalog, ordered them, and have had them for a little over a year now, still good as new. And yes, they do make them in CarbonFiber LOOK!. Really close, just black w/ square/diamond shaped silver dots.Tacky IMHO

A year or two ago Consumer's Reports did a long-term review of wiper blades. They found out that the Toyota OEM blades were better and lasted longer than any of the aftermarket ones, even the fancy silicone, tubocharged Teflon coated jobs!

Having driven Toyotas for decades, I always wondered why the OEM set would last 2-3 years and then after that I found myself replacing the blades every year or less using aftermarket ones. I always thought it was because the windshield got pitted and rough, causing them to wear faster. Well, two years ago, after reading that issue of CR, I decided to replace my wife's Sienna's blades with Toyota OEMs and they seem to be going strong two years later in spite of an old pitted windscreen.

Try the Toyota/Lexus OEM blades.

the Trico Teflon blades are pretty good and not too expensive either only around $5 a piece for the inserts.

I tried the bosch dual compound ones and they didn't last more then a year before they separated. piece of junk that cost a lot.

i've had my PIAA on for almost a year now, they still work like they're new. Definitely recommend them as a replacement if you're looking for some. i got mine from iMotorGear
