I usually keep the wipers running until the blow dry starts. Still there is some gunk buildup. The Clorox window wipes seem to work about as good as anything else I've found.

The Bosch Icons are nice. I'll probably go to them unless I can find Mopar units competitively priced from some of the online dealers... but the local parts stores all carry a good selection of Icons.

If you drive in the snow then a "beam" type is preferred (by me!).

I have the Rain-X on the front and Bosch on the rear. No streaking with the Rain-X blades for me. Hardly use the rear but both have been holding up since the end of the winter.

Re: Windshield wipers recommendation for '11 WK2

Anyone have experience with the new 'Hybrid' models? I just purchased a pair of these Hybrid types from Costco (Goodyear Model 770) The theory is that you get the aerodynamics of a blade wiper with the downforce/pressure points of a OEM/standard blade.

I replaced mine with low cost Michelin wipers from Costco and had no issues with them.
