Good Wiper Blades

Just put on a set of 17" Michelin Optimum wiper blades. They kick ass. They'll probably wear about the same as all the rest. But right now they don't leave a streak one. They also don't have any of the springy mechanisms to get froze up, and the ice doesn't seem to get under them at all so far.

Is IFS something you can get penicillin for???

It's the new "beam blade" style.
It's gonna eventually replace the old style blades, and all new vehicles have something similar to it.
There are only a couple of manufacturers (Dayco and Trico) who sell these to everybody for rebranding: RainX, Michelin, NeoForm at CARQUEST and NAPA, etc., in addition to some generic lines sold wholesale to shops.

Just got a pair for my wife's Saab 9-3 and they're better than anything I've been able to find for the ridiculous curvature of that windscreen. Now if they would only make stubbies for my FJ's vert screen

I've got 'em on my Taco. Pricy, but worth it to get the I70 mud off the windshield reliably. It was a bitch with my (new) old-style blades.

If they last a year I'll be pleased.
