I bought this:

What I got was pretty decent. I would have tried OEM inserts if my OEM blades weren’t long gone. The FL sun bakes them into pieces, so I’m used to replacing them once a year.

Edit: Also if I remember right the rear window blade has to be a certain design to work with the wiper retainer/holder when it’s turned off. Someone else can chime in on that and probably have a better idea than I.

You mean the sun bakes the inserts ... the metal arm assemblies last forever, although the black paint will eventually begin to fade.

On my '14, the original inserts were just as soft, compliant, and free from any cracking as the new inserts I installed. I don't know why they didn't wipe quite as effectively as they did when they were new.
Right I mean the inserts. I’ve used RainX, Bosch, and a few others. Someone replaced the OEMs on my FJ before I got it, so I don’t have the frames any more. I might go for the OEM frames and inserts if the Amazon bargain wipers don’t last (knock on wood).

I’m always so impressed by the quality every time I get new OEM toyota parts. I just picked up a brand new replacement OEM rack and pinion and it looks like a piece of jewelry to me. The quality is so good. So I don’t doubt the oem wipers will last longer than any other.
