Are your current wipers on their last legs? In order to help you find the best GMC Sierra or Chevy Silverado windshield wipers, we asked the DuramaxForum community to let everybody know what works best for them.

Windshield wipers that squeak, rattle, and flat out don’t do their job anymore are an irritant and a hazard. Wiper blades need to be replaced semi-frequently. In fact, we recommend swapping them out at least once a year, or even twice depending on your climate. Because your wipers sit out all day in the direct sun. Putting up with extreme heat in the desert, extreme cold in the north, as well as ice, snow, sand, bugs, and, of course, rain. It's a hard life for them, and they suffer accordingly. The delicate rubber breaks down and suddenly your wipers don't when you need them most.

So we asked you which windshield wiper blades you relied on for your Duramax-powered truck. The ones you had tested out day after day, storm after storm, and went back to the next time you needed them. Here are your recommendations for the best GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado windshield wipers, along with some from our experts.

Original Equipment

The wipers that were on your truck when it left the factory are always a solid choice. GM doesn't want you coming back and complaining about wipers while you're under warranty, so the OEM units are normally a solid choice. "I buy nothing except for original GM wipers," said @MORSNO, with @shunter2005 and other users echoing the feeling.

The other benefit of OEM blades is that they're exactly the same as the ones you're removing. So you don't need to worry about buying the blades with the right mounting attachment or having to struggle to swap out the wipers in your driveway.


Bosch Icon

Bosch makes a host of products, but the one you are most likely to see the company’s logo emblazoned on is windshield wipers. Bosch makes a wide range of wipers and their products were recommended by loads of users. "Bosch ICON, best blades I ever had on my DMax," said @Wildhare with users @GM-GUY and @lockcop agreeing.

Their Icon line is the top of the range and highly recommended. Bosch says that its unique ClearMax 365 wiper blade rubber is extremely resistant to cracking from long-term environmental exposure. In an ozone test, it went 150 hours without the rubber cracking where leading competitors failed in fewer than 50.

The Icon blades also use a beam-style design in place of the more traditional metal frame and hinge wiper. This works better to keep them flat to the windshield glass and it makes the blades less likely to get jammed up by snow and ice in the winter. Bosch blades, no matter which you get, are high up on our list of best GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado wiper blade recommendations.


Rain-X Latitude

The company is best known for its rain-repelling windshield coating that can stop you from even needing wipers in some foul-weather conditions. But Rain-X also makes some excellent windshield wipers.

Rain-X offers its top-end wipers with a beam-blade design that works better to keep the blades clear of snow and ice and planted to the glass. But it also has conventional hinge-frame wipers for those looking for a value-priced wiper and then the middle-ground hybrid wiper. The Hybrid wiper combines the features of beam and conventional wipers, offering a lower cost than a beam-style but much better performance than a conventional wiper. "Rain-X Latitude has worked well on my 2018," said user @GoBlowSnow.


PIAA Aero Vogue

"PIAA, has my vote. Been using them for years in the rainy PNW," said user @KTM 505.

PIAA uses a silicone rubber that lasts longer with a compound that is meant to help promote water beading - for cleaner glass - and quiet operation. These wipers offer refillable arms. So you can swap only the rubber blade when it is time for a change and not have to put the rest of the wiper frame in the garbage. That can reduce costs for you and it's better for the planet. Piaa shows its Aero Vogue wiper lasting for the equivalent of two years of ozone exposure without cracking, a test competitors failed at just eight months.


Trico Silicone Ceramic

Trico is the company that actually invented the windshield wiper blade, way back in 1917. Not long after, it developed the first power-operated wipers as well. Today the company offers a dozen different grades of wiper from bargain to its super-premium Silicone Ceramic wipers.

We lean toward Silicone Ceramic because these top-grade blades are designed to last three times longer than average blades. The coating reduces friction and drag on the glass, letting them operate more smoothly and doing a better job of clearing your windshield. The coating also protects the blade material from ozone, UV, and weather conditions, part of why they can last so long in the first place. "I have had tricos on there for 3 years, still work perfectly, no streaking," said user @Nathanp69.
