The Importance of Winter Wiper Blades and Glass Treatment

Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades?

If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades are any good? At no time of the year is seeing out of your windshield more important, and more difficult, than in winter. Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Arm your car or truck with Rain-X Glass Treatment and Rain-X wipers.

Rain-X Latitude 8-In-1 Wiper Blades are the ultimate blades for sleet and snow. Unlike conventional wiper blade frames, the Latitude's beam design won't collect ice and snow, which can freeze conventional frames to the point where the blade no longer contacts the windshield. With Latitude blades you won't have to interrupt your trip to clear ice and snow from wiper blade frames, only to have them freeze again. You can check the presentation of this product here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqMcVY7FKqk

Rain-X® - Latitude™ Wiper Blade


Another wiper blades Rain-X offers are Weatherbeater™ 22" Wiper Blade.

Rain-X® - Weatherbeater™ Wiper Blade


Also Rain-X develops a line of related glass care products. Because Rain-X Glass Treatment requires the glass surface to be perfectly clean, Rain-X X-treme Clean is the perfect glass cleaner. It removes dirt, grime, and bugs, plus build-up that other cleaners leave behind, from glass and clear plastic. Rain-X 2-In-1 Glass Cleaner not only cleans, it also applies a rain repellent to improve wet weather driving. Click here to see how exactly it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTpfaxI5DSI

The Commander has a "fairly" flat front windshield as well as the rest of the windows. So the wiper articulating to fit the curves of the windows is NOT that critical for a Commander.

I have tried the Single Blade type Wipers (e.g. the Rain-X Latitude above) in several cars, the Commander they work great.

Personally, I really can't see any distinct advantage of one over the other, single arm low profile blade or the multi-hinge point articulating wipers (the typical traditional wiper) except for the following.

Arguably the lower profile single arm wiper would intrude less into the view of the drive while parked. But its thicker and solid, while the traditional wiper has thinner pieces with openings. Personally, I really couldn't discern any difference in visibility using one or the other, its just up to the owner which he likes better.

*The single arm low profile wiper does NOT have any hinges to get frozen up in cold weather, and they perform equally well in warmer weather, so they are a better all seasons wiper blade.

*The typical multi-arm and hinge point blades, combined with pressure from the wiper arm can curve and articulate better to fit sharper curves of some wind shields.

The Commander has a fairly flat windshield so using single arm wipers will never be a problem.

My Neon R/T (and its NOT the only vehicle like this) had a very large raked back wind shield with a lot of curve. The single arm wipers couldn't fit the curve as well and I got less coverage with that type of wiper compared to the traditional wiper. Of course in wet winter weather, I had those arms freeze up and provide less coverage until I broke the ice out of the hinges.

They also make winter wipers that are traditional construction of multiple arms and hinges, they have a rubber sleeve covering all the arms and hinges to keep the freezing moisture out. They are ugly and since all the opening in the traditional wipers are NOT covered with a rubber sleeve, they create a much greater obstruction to vision.
