Default Silicone Wiper Blades?

I heard something about silicone wiper blades. They supposedly last twice as long as the regular rubber ones and have a closer hold to the glass. I'm looking for some for my STi. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Yeah, I have silblades and I am very happy with them - 5 year warranty. PIAA also makes silicone wipers now.

The PIAA silicone blades are nice, a little expensive if you get the whole blade+frame. Somewhere you can find the refill blades though for alot cheaper tha the whole set. Of course, don't expect them to be the end to all things wiper blades but still better than the stock ones in my opinion.

You could also try the TRIPLEDGE silicone blades (which are available at any Walmart). I've had success with them in the past. Decent performance for the price.
