Anton: I don't know the answer but any auto parts store will have a chart that will tell you the proper length. They are only a telephone call away. Except on Xmas.

Re: Simple Question...................................

From my experiences I would keep them the stock lenght. I once put longer ones on and the wind would really affect them at higher speeds, and they did not work as good, or move as fast either the rest of the time.

Re: Simple Question...................................

It depends on what year you have according to some of the manufacturers. One says the 11" fit early models while 13" fit later models. I have early and late and don't see the difference. Carparts.com will have the numbers you need. Hope this helps....

Re: Simple Question...................................

For good visibillity, I've found a couple of tricks (some are old) that help.

Change blades frequently. Flat winshields are more prone to stone pitting and this pitting eats blades.

An ounce or two of white vinegar added to the washer reservoir helps clean a bit better.

Using products like Rain-Ex help a great deal. With a properly treated windshield (mirrors, headlights and all glass) visibillity is dramatically increased.

Trico has introduced a teflon wiper blade but I have not found them yet. I really want to try them.

Hope this helps..... I just like to see the road.

Re: Simple Question...................................

Whats Rain-Ex? Ill try putting some white vinegar in the washer fluid. I got some 13" snow blades! Too bad the zuk wind sheild motor is so weak even with a GM 100A altornator.

Re: Simple Question...................................

anton-rain-ex treats the mirror and inside glass so that
they don't fog as easy -good product-they also made or maybe
still do a windshield washer fluid additive that helped to
clean the outside of the windshield. i run 13" wipers on my
88 zuke. the wiper motor seems as strong as on the 97 sport
and stronger than on the opel gt or chevy cavalier- oldzuki

Re: Simple Question...................................

Rain-Ex makes an exterrior window treatment available at most auto stores. After treating the glass (exterrior), water will bead up and roll off. At speed, sometimes wipers are not required when other motorists have to use them. The glass surface becomes super slick. It's kind of like a freshly waxed painted surface. Water beads up and rolls off.
