Which wiper blades work best in snow?

There are several other types of wiper blades, the most common and affordable being the traditional frame-style wipers. These windshield wipers have a metal frame that the wipers are mounted onto. Beam-style wipers conform to the windshield and do not have the metal frame that traditional wipers have. The best windshield wipers for winter weather conditions are winter guard windshield wiper blades. These wiper blades are made using a more durable rubber and have a shield around the blade that prevents ice and snow from accumulating on the blade itself. The owner’s manual has specifications regarding the best windshield wipers for you car. It is important to note that all windshield wipers are only meant to last 6 months to a year.
