Whatever’s cheapest, but I use Zaino on my windshield and never have to use my wipers except to get snow off of them but even then the snow doesn’t stick it just accumulates from the bottom up. Rain, mud, salt, and bugs don't even stick to it, they just kinda roll off of it! LOL

I found a coupon for Motorcraft, So I got the indicator ones. I think it was $14.99 for both. They've been on for 2 years now.

Rain x are good. Also apply a coat of wax to your windows. Works great for wicking water away and the windows actually gleam afterwards.

I tried the Anco frameless blades and they sucked at hugging the windshield contour. the middle of the blades were compressed to **** and the outer areas were barely touching the glass.
I returned them the same day and got a pair of Latitudes and haven't looked back

Another +1 for the rain-x latitudes. When I got my new truck I swapped the year old latitudes off my old truck because they worked way better than the stock brand wipers that came on the truck.

The EXACT same thing happened to me except I didn't return mine like I should have. I think I'll try to use them on another (older, flatter windshield) truck.
