In case you need to replace your wipers, Trico Neoforms 16-220 work greeeaaat. They are the beam type blade but will work on our pin arms. I got some today from work and they work excellent

some rainx on the windshield and most blades work great wink
i use bosch excels and i've never had a problem wiht visability or noise/chatter. but i keep all the glass clean, clear and coated.
on a different note;
0000 steel wool + brasso or heavy duty cleaner will take care of hard water spots and oxidation on glass btw. then coat the glass with either acrylic glaze (like Klasse) or rainx to make perfect exterior glass.

murrays has them, i want to say pepboys and autozone has them too. I'm not sure about advance.

I got to actually use them today since it rained and wow they are nice. Not a sound and crystal clear wipe. plus I like the very sweet and simple look and design to them

I originally got the bosch excel+ for it and they were so so. made a little noise and wipe wasnt as good but i didn't try any windshield treatment or anything like Matthew mentioned. I generally use Rain-x washer solvent

Also, thanks for the tip on glass treatment, Matthew. good stuff
