Default 24 Inch Wipers Blades.... get another inch

Sometimes in life you need another inch. I found Duralast Flex Blade 24 inch wipers at AutoZone. They fit the arms perfectly, and provide another inch at the top measure of the wiper travel. That seems to be about the max that will fit the arms. The left wiper will reside just under the arm, but there is no downward pressure on the wiper blade to the windshield. The right wiper fits perfectly and adds peripheral vision to right side. There is no interferance during the full travel.

There may be other 24 inch wipers that fit, but this one seems to fit without issues. So if you are looking for an extra inch, it may work.

I've gotten used to the shorties, but now that you did the legwork, I think I'll switch blades too. Thanks for sharing.

An inch overall is just 1/2" at the top....
I don't think that this makes a huge difference.

I'll probably wait until October since we won't see any rain until then here is sunny California.

Dutchman... the current wipers are 22 inches.. so thee 24 inches give a full inch at the top.. do the math. I already took the spit half in account...

WOJO... I looked at a number of Wiper Blades available at several stores. I decided NOT to try one with attachements do to potential complications, and appearence. So when I found this one, with no attachments that clearly fit the U-arms, I gave one blade a try and then installed the second. The part number I used only comes up as AutoZone. I would only be guessing about any other blades... I could not find the manufacturer of the OEM ones on the Karma. The Autozone's are able to be ordered on line, if there is no store in your area.
