Default wiper blade

Just replaced a pair with Goodyear brand from Costco. Costco is currently running buy one get one free deal so $8 will buy a pair. I have used this on my other vehicles and I absolutely have never used anything quieter and better performing wiper blade [28yrs of driving]. This is the newer design that is one piece so it’s perfect during winter months when sometimes snow buildup between the blade and arm will reduce wiping performance. Its also aero designed so it reduces “lifting” in high speed [just like OEM]. Its not listed in wiper catalogue but its “J” type arm and uses 26inch on driver and 22inch on passenger just like the Gen2RX.

Rear is 14 inch BTW. Too bad I have OE refills already. They will be changed by the dealer in November when I bring in the RX for service so I'm set for a while. Thanks for the review.

I just changed out a pair on my 07 Avalon. They were perfect for almost 5 years. I replaced them with the same and the cost was around $47. I imagine the Lexus OEM will be quite a bit more than that.

Definitely a great buy, it is one the best I have ever used.
These are fantastic wipers, well built ones, I bought two extra sets, in case costco will not get the stocks anymore, I am home free for the next 3 years hopefully.

This is a really good wiper and still working good after two years in my other vehicle. most premium wipers i have used in the past lasted about a year but this seems to last longer. two kids in travel hockey, i drove all over East in winter months so good working wiper is very important. can't beat the Costco price of $8 and with current promotion, a pair for $8.
