Ive never tried them so take this with a grain of salt but Id say no. $42 for a pair of wipers when a $20 set of Michelin or other quality brand at Auto Zone or wherever would work just fine. Fill your washer fluid up with RainX fluid and thatll keep the windshield nice and slick so that rain just slide up and over it anyway.

If youve got the money to spare and want to give them a try then I dont see any reason not to but I dont think it would be "worth it" for $42.

Stick to oem wiper. I have try so many different kinds of wiper blades and I always go back to oem. I know many people who have done the same and as well always go back to oem. And its cheaper just change the inserts and u r good to go. If u plan to try it anyways keep ur oem blades in case u dont like the new blades and just put back the oem ones with new inserts

Another vote for the OEM wipers... The inserts are less than $5/side and they work really well in my experience. Haven't tried the PIAA ones.

I just replaced my OEM blades with a set of OEM inserts. Still the best wipers I've ever used. Don't waste money on anything else for these cars.

The best thing about OEM is you can replace them monthly if you want and it doesn't cost much. I just change them out on my 6 month oil change cycles.

Here's a How To: I made of the process in case you don't already know:

Yep another vote here for OEM. Just put in new refills. About $12 on eBay for a set.

Had about 8 months on them and they were just starting to streak/smudge at the sides of the windshield.
