Most any brand of a beam type so there's no hinges to freeze. Of the beam blades, I've used Napa (so so), Anco (best IMO), Goodyear (trying these now since they were cheap at $7 from Costco), and Bosch (worst with lots of streaking out of the box. And I took 2 back to exchange due to the streaking for which the parts guy said was common with them).

The absolute best blade I have ever used was a Trico Force from O'reilly. They are damn expensive and go on sale occasionally for 30$/pair. They never streaked, never stuttered, and last forever. I have tried all the rain-x blades, bosch, michelin, and all the cheap ones and have concluded that if Trico blades aren't available, michelin is my second choice. Make sure you get a couple bottles of Rain-x orange (rated to -20) windshield washer fluid and you'll be set.

i get the cheapest i lived in wa state for a few years and i yet havent noticed the diffrence with the so called good blades. just my opinion. they get ruined when it snows and when it knows they used dirt to kinda melt the snow on roads and when a semi goes by the splash dirt up on your windsheild and just ruins the windsheild wipers as you turn the on to clear it. just my opinion here i dont like to spend alot of money on just wipers. i usually go to walmart and buy the cheapest one for like 3 bucks a peice now they got supertech wipers.
