or pick them up at most autoparts stores. Bosch Icons I believe. RainX makes some too.

Valeo Ultimates were the first but then there are several others out now. Rain-x has a version, there is one available at Target, Bosch has them...

I got them at Tire Rack during their BOGO sale. Mine have been fine for years but my wife destroyed a pair in less than 2 months.

If you search for the BOGO thread you'll see the optional sizes and how they fit.

i think they were called aero or something like that??
but those ultimates look awfully similar if not the same.
i checked the tirerack website but i only see 19", 20", and 21" ultimates. did they stop selling larger size (for DS)?

I think the 21" is for the drivers side and the 20" is for the passenger side. That's how I have mine. Although some people have used 21" for both drivers and passenger side.

They are all the same. It is a licensing deal on patented product.

I run 21, 24, and 16 inch.

Valeo's are trash (No offense to people who have them, I just had bad experience with them on mom's car.) Had my icons for a year now, still working perfectly fine with no streaks, with a combination of rainX.
