I go up to the snow almost every weekend during the winter, and it seems that none of the windshield wipers I've tried can withstand the bone-chilling 32 degrees
that we get at Tahoe.
I always lift the wipers off the glass when I park it to prevent them from freezing into the shape of the glass. However, regardless of whether I leave them up or down, after two trips they both begin to leave streaks when I am using them during the rain/snow. It seems that by freezing they somehow get deformed and can no longer clear the glass without leaving streaks. BTW, the wipers I am using are Bosch microblades (about $10 each at a local Kragen).
While on the mountain this weekend I talked to a guy on a lift who told me that there are some wipers out there that can withstand the cold temperatures without getting deformed. Does something like that exist, or is it a pipe dream?
