Ac delco blades you can get by the Ac delco place in balmain couva.. they should have.. exit the highway @ preysal and heading west as if towards couva. ac delco place is on the right just after the stadium.

They also do alignment too...and battery checks and such.

Read above message in its entirety.

No skipping. Silicone cleans itself also. With the dry season might get till mid yr. I would only be changing for changing sake cause they are there for so long.

Lol Saw amazon but thought maybe gastly got his locally. Last time I brought a pair of Bosch Clear Advantage wipers Amazon sent them in a huge box and skybox raped me with charges.

That's how i do it.
That long shipping box is a killer unless off course you fill them with refills to offset the shipping cost cause it would easily hold over 40 units.

I saw Pricesmart had good year blades. Packaging looked really high end, almost bought a pair, but they were $90.00 each. Left that right there....

I would try the $75 Bosch from the powerseller before I spring for those as the bosch has had food reviews.

so pocket lil low and need new blades

went looking for the RainX that I have been using, but couldn't get them. those were $40 ea and worked real bess. I was on my second set and they gave me about 1.5 years each set,

found some cheapo Yoka blades in Rons $25ea and decided to try them. Had a frameless design and the rubber felt soft. I don't think it was a silicone blade.

Yep...If you read the fine print on the Michelin box you will see that it is pylon that manufactures most of the models for Michelin.
