When it’s raining or snowing outside, it can be tough to see the road ahead of you know, so you know where you’re driving. This is why it’s such a good idea to make sure you’re keeping your windshield wipers in good shape, especially if you live in an area where it rains or snows a lot. Every once in a while, you should have new windshield wiper blades put on your wipers.
The last thing you want to do is scratch your windshield when you turn your wipers on, which is why your wiper blades are made of a soft rubber material. The problem is, that soft material tends to wear down quite a bit as you use your windshield wipers. As a result, you have to replace your wiper blades fairly often to keep them working right.
Your wiper blades should be replaced at least once a year, with the preference being once every six months. If you go too long in between wiper blade changes, the bare wiper could cause damage to your windshield. At the very least, your wipers will start leaving streaks in your windshield that make it hard to see.
When most people replace their wiper blades, they simply go to a parts store and pick up reasonably priced wiper blades from a popular brand. The problem is, these wiper blades might not be a good fit for your wipers, which means your windshield won’t stay as clear and installation may be more difficult. On the other hand, OEM Hyundai wiper blades are the best wiper blades because they’re designed to be a perfect fit for your Hyundai. Plus, OEM wiper blades are generally just as affordable as their aftermarket counterparts.
Aside from only using them less, there are a few things you can do to make your wiper blades last a little longer. For starters, make sure you aren’t letting your wiper blades freeze to the windshield or damaging them when scraping ice. You should also avoid running your windshield wipers when the windshield is dry.
