hey i was wondering if the PIAA Super Silicone Wiper Blades are actually worth their price.. i need some new wipers and found these online but they are um.. expensive to say the least. any comments or reviews would be appreciated..
I have a set. I got them from Drivewire.com for an OK price. They work well I kind of wish we'd get some good rain here but we've been pretty dry the last few months. Installing them was strange. They give you a pre-treatment pad for the windscreen. What it is, is just rain-x as far as I can tell. Then (here is the strange part) they want you to run the wipers, dry, for like 5 minutes. This is to coat the windscreen from the wiper blades. That kind of scared me because I've found Subaru glass scratches really easly. So I just did it for a few swipes then stopped.
They do work well and don't chatter. You are supposed to only use them for a year and replace them though according to the directions. so it's not like you get a lot more use out of them than normal blades. I change mine every year anyway.
They work well, they work no better than Bosch's top of the line(can't remember the name). Not worth the extra $$, although I still have the PIAAs on the car b/c, hell, I was one of the suckers who bought 'em.
