Back in the old days of my youth, wiper blades seemed to last for many years. But then again, I lived in MT where our annual rainfall was extremely low. The chances of actually driving your vehicle during the rain were pretty slim. Now I live in Ill-a-noise where the rain is as abundant as liberalism. It seems I don't get more than a couple months of use out of the wipers before they start to go bad (kind of like our governors). I usually get my wipers (and diapers) at Wal-mart, but if anyone has any suggestions for where I can get good quality wipers, I'm all ears.
