I second this question: 24" for both?

I have them on both sides, and they are an improvement in terms of window area cleared. The rubber isn't an improvement, it squeaks sometimes when the rain is a mist, the OEM wipers did not.

The link mentioned in the earlier posts is dead, and I just bought Bosch 24A ICON Wiper Blade - 24" from Amazon that appear to fit fine, in case someone is looking for a current options. Of course, as soon as I fitted the new blades, the torrential downpour in SF stopped. Will report on performance later, but for now, the longer blades wipe fine with no interference.

24'' blades fit fine on both sides, but I think the driver side blade could even be a tad longer, 26'' or maybe even 28''. For the passenger side, 24'' appears to be the limit.

Auto Zone also has a 24 inch blade that works fine and fits the Karma arms. They are sold in single packs. I replaced the OEM 22" blades right after getting the Karma, and have used Auto Zones brand for nearly 5 years. No issues.

I have 24s on both sides and I think I could go 25s on each.

I also have 24" on both now. No need for anything fancy: I buy Goodyear from Costco when they go on sale for a few bucks each, and they work better than the OEM.
