    New owner needs advice on wiper blades

    Hey everyone! May sound like stupid question but looking for better blades then the OEM already there.

    Any suggestions? Preparing for NYC snow coming up.

    Thanks.

    I've been quite happy with Anco's winter blades. Inexpensive and they work quite well, even in summer.

    Never heard of a winter blades .... again, marketing tricks to fool customers. OFC it works well in summer, we have 4 seasons in europe as well (switzerland can be very very very cold) but we don't have winter and summer blades

    Winter blades put a rubber sleeve over the metal frame to protect it from ice.

    Thanks guys! Now looking in the manual I can't find the size but it looks as if the passenger side is a 16 and river side 24. Am I right?

    Thanks M4. But are these sizes universal for all countries? Cause I've read there are different ones?
