Beam Wiper Blades

Anyone find beam wiper blades to fit the Berkshire factory arms?

I looked all over for cost effective 32 inch wiper blades when mine needed replacing. Unless you find them on sale they can run $50 to $60 per blade. I replaced mine with 28 inch Beam Blades. You can get the 28 inch size almost anywhere for a reasonable price and they work great. I do not even notice the missing 4 inches. This way I figure I can get them easily while on the road.

I have read where others have done the same.

Have you tried Advanced Auto website? I purchased 28 inch complete wipers blades for under $15.

I use 28" "whatevers" and they work fine. I notice no difference in the size of the wipe. The top wiped portion is still probably a foot over my viewing angle so no one should be concerned with replacing hard to find sized 32" blades

Was looking for 32". May try the 28" though since a lot of you have and seem ok with it.

I get mine at CW. I had a new one break while going down the road. The plastic clip broke. I couldn't find any size that would work at a Pilot station. I had to remove the arm on the passenger side and get one at the next CW. I have a spare now.

Phil:

Are the replacements beam blades or the OEM with splines?
