Default Rain-x blades

I put some rain-x wiper blades on my wife's car and they work really good. I want to put some on my truck now because the current ones have always been so loud unless its raining really hard. Problem is I don't know what sizes to get and they are not listed on the website. Anyone know the sizes?

Those are to expensive for me. I'll stick with rain-x I think. Can get 2 for that price. Thanks!

Yes, they are 22". I put the rain-x blades on my truck last year and really like them except they vibrate a little at 80+ mph.lol. But I think any blade does at that speed. Anyway, they are quiet and seem to be a good set of wiper blades so far.

love the rain-x blades. I didn't think there was such a thing as crappy wiper blades until I was on a budget and got the cheapest ones at autozone. What kind of blade is loud even in the heaviest of rain fall? Needless to say I got the rain-x ones and they are a great set of blades for a fair price.

Do you guys have the regular ones? I didn't even know they made more than one kind until I looked on amazon and they have some for $20 or more each. Lol

I'm BIG on clear visibility out of my front windshield and have tried a number of brands over the years. Back in 2006 I was recommended Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades by a fellow GTO owner who raved about them on the LS1 boards. They were not cheap but I thought I'll toss out my Bosch and Michelin blades and give them a try. Best move I ever made!

I now exclusively use Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades on ALL our vehicles.

VERY highly recommended.
