Re: wiper blade sizes

Does anyone have a recomendation for "winter" wiper blades? I'm pretty sure that with the size of these blades the rubber coated ones will just lift off the window at speed.

Re: True Blue....Help!

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. It's a pretty big gamble if I end up hating the colour. On the other hand if I go for a known colour and True Blue turns out to be awesome I'll be kicking myself.
