Seeing the road ahead is one of the most important components in maintaining your visibility are your wiper blades. Wiper Blades, degrade for a variety of reasons and should be replaced when you start to see the performance of the wiper declining. Some of the symptoms of a poor performing wiper blades include squeaking, streaking or you may visibly start to see them fall apart. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should have them replaced. Even if you do not have any symptoms, replacing your wiper blades every year is a great way to keep your visibility when you need it the most.
Wiper blades come in a variety of different quality’s and prices. We recommend replacing your windshield wiper blades with ones that are of good quality and going to withstand the harsh environments. If you live in an environment that sees ice and snow, you may want to consider a winter blade that remains more flexible in the cold weather and has a rubber cover over the arms to prevent ice and slush from freezing to it.
