I originally posted my initial review about a year ago on the FB group page but I am going to update here. Last year I was on the search for replacement wiper blades for my FJ and read many reviews on how great the Trico Neoform blades were. So, I decided to give them a try. I originally bought them from wipers123.com and received them in a timely manor. The blades looked great and appeared superior to conventional blades. I installed them and on initial use I was pleased. The blades worked well for several months until fall of this year when the drivers side blade began to streak, skip, and chatter across the windshield. Fast forward to the past month and the drivers side blade has totally failed. I noticed a few weeks back that the wiper strip that makes contact with the glass was starting to deform and turn under which caused the wiper to leave a 2 inch section of the glass uncleared. So today with rain in the forecast I decided to pick up a new replacement from where else? Walmart. I will get to that shortly. When I went to change the Trico blade out I then noticed that the wiping edge had separated from the rest of the wiper. It was about a 3-4 inch section of the actual wiping edge of the blade that had torn and was no longer clearing the windshield. However, despite the failure of the 16" drivers side blade the two 14" middle and passengers side blades are still clearing very well. Infact, they are clearing as well as the replacement blade I purchased today. So in short I did not even get a full year of service from my 16" Trico Neoform blade.

Now for the replacement I bought. I was very close to buying a Bosch blade but decided to give the Michelin Stealth blade a try. This is another beam blade similar to, well, all the beam blades out there. According to the packaging this blade is made by Pylon.
So far I am pleased with this blade. During my driving today it worked very well. I paid a little over $12 tax included for this Michelin blade.

Yeah I bought the Michelin Stealth today. I am still using the Trico Neoform on the middle and passenger side wipers though.
