Wiper Blades

I need to order new wiper blades (before the monsoons start) and since I'm already ordering some stuff from Rock Auto I thought I'd get them there (though I'd also be open to the "private label" ones from smartmadness) - here are my choices from Rock Auto:

TRICO Part # 19210 Universal Beam Blades - Tech

ACDELCO Part # 822213 {#19161507} Performance
BLADE,WSW DRIVER SIDE; 22 IN 560 MM $11.60
ACDELCO Part # 822113 {#19161506} Performance

TRICO Part # 162113 NeoForm Blade; 21" (525mm) Pinch Tab
OE Design Right $12.65
TRICO Part # 162213 NeoForm Blade; 22" (550mm) Pinch Tab
OE Design Left $13.68

BOSCH Part # 463 Icon
Passenger's Side $15.90
BOSCH Part # 464 Icon
Driver's Side $18.57

There's not really much difference in the cost - so I'd like to just get the best ones available. And no stupid looking adapters.

So - recommendations? TIA - sheureka

I went to a local Autozone, checked their charts and found the 'correct' blades for my 09 smart. took them home....DIDN'T FIT. not even close.

so I returned them to Autozone. got my refund and off to Advance Auto Parts. same thing....no fit (tried them BEFORE I left this time).

then on to O'Reilley Auto Parts. no luck. so, what does a smart car owner do? ordered a pair from smart Center Cincinnati!

I'm thinking the problem might be a bit deeper than the blades.

Got my replacement wiper blades from Advance Auto here in NC. Installed and a 10 dollar rebate--and they are wiping just fine---very close to the original in appearance.....

Got my Goodyear blades from Costco a while back - they were $8 each and fit perfectly.

I bought mine at Wally World. Couldn't remember the size, looked it up on their dinky computer. No problem. Well, it took a few minutes to figure out the installation for the first one, but that's just me, LOL.

I've had the Bosch Icons on my car for over a year and they are still working like new. Walmart is selling the Bosch Marathon #220E and #240E blades for $14 each and they are a direct fit for the smart.

Check out Amazon.com. I have gotten good service from them along with free shipping (over $25 purchase). I bought the Rain-X blades and they aren't very good. Bosch served me much better last year.

I am using Rain-X (of whatever) blades. Don't recall the correct codes for them - found that on-line, bought the wipers local after that.
