Consensus on wiper blades for snow?
What's the consensus on the right wiper blade that will work well in heavy snow conditions?
I've read many of the threads, and most of them diverge into failed rubber refills, failed aftermarket options, discussions of fluids and heating them, heated windshields, or other sidetracks.
The core issue is the factory blades don't do a good job of keeping pressure in the middle of the blade. I see this across all temperatures. Mostly I see the issue on the right blade, but also left, and to a lesser degree the middle.
Even at low speeds with temps in the mid-20's and the heater blasting full defrost the blades don't work correctly.
Q1: Will simple lubrication of the factory wiper blade assembly solve the issue but not wash away?
Q2: Is there a good aftermarket blade that has been shown to keep even pressure and keep the snow clear?
My goal is to find the best blade solution, not to install more heaters. My Gen1 4Runner with its massively longer paltry two wipers does far better than the FJ.
