The Trico Neoforms (28") that I put on my 96 are holding up pretty well. They are about a year old. One is just a little noisy with occasional chatter during light rain, but much better than RainX which chatter and sound like a mash potato beater. These are pretty expensive so check for coupons, rebates, and/or online deals.Maybe get some advice here, My wife has a 03 Dodge Caravan. It seems like I am always installing wiper blades, maybe someone can tell me that have got good service from their wiper blades, what would be a good replacement that will hold up.
I second the crappy review of the RainX blades. I have had the same set on my 2000 Voyager since April. Sometimes they are great, other times they chatter and or don't clear good. Had a problem with the clip popping off constantly which put a scratch in my windshield. I spent 55 bucks on a set of 3 Bosch Icon blades and had to return the front set because they were impossible to clip onto my wiper arms. I kept the one for there rear as it worked fine and I like the blade although I still have the problem of not clearing the top of the back window. Anco Contours DO fit on the front but limited budget has prevented me from purchasing them just yet. I look forward to other reviews as I will be wiper shopping again soon. Personally on other cars I've owned I have had best luck with the cheap set you can get at dollar general for like 3 bucks a blade. A good tip for prolonging the life of your blades is to keep the windshield as clean as possible. Also while I'm filling up the tank I always wipe the blades of with a paper towel to get dirt and crap off the blade. Waxing your windshield is another good tip I have learned over the years.The Trico Neoforms (28") that I put on my 96 are holding up pretty well. They are about a year old.

I usually just replace mine when they begin to streak. I usually get whatever Advance, NAPA or AZ have at a reasonable price. Usually I can get a year's worth of service out of them. The current set I have on the Ram are from Safelite when I had the windshield repaired. They don't streak yet, but two months after I put them on they chatter when dry or not quite wet enough. Will probably replace them soon.I don't understand because I almost always buy the same Anco blades, yet one set will last for a while and the next won't. Soemtimes I get a year, other times just 4-6 months.
My blade sizes are 22" for drivers side and 18" for the passenger side. They perform excellent in the high heat, never an issue, they suggest cleaning the windshield real good before installing them so that they will have a real clean surface because in the beginning they claim they lay down a silicone shield on the glass which helps with a water repellent feature of silicone and squeaking of the blades, I have never had squeaking blades with these, these are not rubber blades, these are 100% silicone, and my minivan is always out in the sun, no garage to protect it As for the back window I never looked into the triple edge for that because on my 94 GC it has a special wiper arm with the washer spray hose and nozzle built into it and I just put regular rubber refills into it, it lasts about a year or more, I don't think tripledge has the refill for my rear wiper arm, and if I go with the whole assembly they have an adapter for the spray nozzle and I don't really want to change that arm assembly, but I haven't checked for a total silicone refill since about 2006 so maybe they have one now? I don't hardly ever use the rear wiper anyhow so that is why it's not an issue for me, just go to their site and you can do a search to see the wiper sizes that go with your vehicle, just type in the tripledge name in the addy bar.Cool I wonder what the regular price is? What size arfe your blades? How well do they perform after 100 plus degree summers. I am interested because a few months after b uying blades for the 05 there is rubber hanging off the blades. Do they work for the back window?
Thanks for the info
