Default PIAA wiper blade refills? Where?

Do they have these at Lordco? I was going to call but thought I would throw in a car related thread along withe relationship threads.

Default pia wipers

I have purchased from Lordco...
They should have them... safer to call in for a specific size
to make sure they have them in stock...
They dont seem to last as long... as the non-refills
but still great wipers. safe on of the alcohol packs for future use.

Hahaha.....I need them in 4 different sizes, 17, 18, 21, and 22 (Toyota Matrix and 04 WRX), so chances are likely they won't have all of them. I did buy the original blades from Lordco when they were on sale last year, but need new refills now. I should call to double check if they have the sizes. Thanks for the reminder.

if your piaa wiper blades aren't working as well as they should and they are under a year old you can get them replaced under warranty. I've seen a couple instances where they just didn't last as long as they should. piaa is very good about replacements.

lordco is the easiest place to go.

They are actually the longest lasting blades I have ever used. Much better than the Bosche's I used to buy, but then I haven't tried the latest Bosches. I think mine are 14 months or more old and on the Toyota in particular, I've made 2 trips through mud and snow in the winter to Banff and Vernon.

Hmmm...they're at 4th and Main? Depends on how good the price is. I work and live in Burnaby, so driving all that way to save $5 is out of the question, but I do need them on both cars, so if I can save $5 each, that'd be a different story.

You had me freaked out because I paid less than that for my wiper blades. I am looking for refills.....which should be significantly less than $50 for a pair.

I've had mine for over two years, and paid through the nose for them.

Wipes streak free like the day I first bought them. On my daily driver too.

Just called Lordco and they don't sell the refills.

I can get them from AutoBarn, but it's like $33 shipping for 4 refills.

Lordco has the blades but not at all stores. The Langley one has refills as well as the Richmond store. The Surrey ones (King George and Hwy 10) do not have them in stock. I don't think the Kingsway super store has them either.

Hmmm...maybe it's the boneheads at Metrotown. That's the one I called. By main store, you main Still Creek right? I'll give them a call today maybe. Thanks for the tip.
