wiper blades

Ended up getting Trico replacement inserts at Advance, universal, 7.99 for a pair (cut to fit). NOTE - our OEM wipers are a 6mm "claw" width.
Local stealership quoted $18.00 EACH for inserts, no idea how much for a full set including arms.

The Michelins I had were 8mm "claw", $12 a pair for full arms. They were great at first, started chattering with freezing weather. May try NAPA next time, they have inserts in 6, 7, and 8 mm width in both 21 and 22 inch lengths.

A coat rain-x or aquapel helps quite a bit too.
