Are Winter Wipes Blades Really Necessary

October 31st, 2021 by

As a responsible driver, you are likely taking steps to prepare your vehicle for winter. Windshield wiper blades are one of the things that most commonly get neglected. At Dahl Hyundai, we want you to know why this is a bad idea.

First, know that your standard windshield wiper blades are designed to handle water and not much else. They are not sturdy enough to deal with ice or built-up snow. This means the first time you turn them on in a winter storm that they may not clear your windshield like they need to.

Second, know that the frames of summer and winter wiper blades are different. The top priority for summer blades is flexibility. For winter, having a rigid blade is more important. Making sure that you have the right wiper blades can make a significant difference in your safety in La Crosse, WI, and beyond.
