When winter comes around, changing your summer wiper blades to winter wiper blades will help protect your windshield against ice, sleet and snow, so you can see the road clearly.
A set of winter wiper blades is invaluable because:
- The rubber on winter blades is specifically designed for extreme weather conditions.
- The rubber is also heavy enough to push away snow and ice and resist buildup.
- The blades have fewer moving parts that can freeze up or break in the cold.
Wiper blades feature a simple connecting system that makes DIY installation a snap.
In the spring, when the snow and ice is gone, replace your winter blades with a set of summer wiper blades. Wiper blades are critical for safety, but have a short lifespan – six months. Check the blades and replace if they are worn or damaged.
