As we enter the winter season with its days and challenging weather conditions, it becomes crucial to prioritize visibility while driving. At Upper James Toyota, we understand the significance of winter wiper blades, in ensuring this visibility. In this blog post, we will explore why upgrading to winter wiper blades is a step for driving during the harsh Canadian winter – empowering you with confidence and clarity.


Standard Wiper VS Winter Wiper Blades 

Winter wiper blades differ significantly from standard ones. Designed for harsh conditions, they feature a protective rubber cover to prevent ice and snow buildup, unlike standard blades that can struggle in winter. This specialized design maintains effectiveness and visibility in freezing temperatures.


Benefits of Winter Wiper Blades

The benefits of using winter wiper blades are evident in their performance. Their robust design enables them to cut through snow and ice effectively, minimizing streaking and smearing issues commonly experienced with blades. As a result, your visibility improves significantly during snowfall. Additionally, these blades exhibit durability in temperatures, reducing the likelihood of cracking or tearing – providing reliable performance throughout the entire season.

Installation and Maintenance

Installing winter wiper blades is a simple yet impactful way to prepare for winter driving. Most blades can be changed easily, and our team at Upper James Toyota is always here to assist you. Once installed, regular checks for wear and tear are essential. Clean them periodically to remove any debris or ice buildup, ensuring optimal performance.


When to Replace Them

It’s recommended to replace wiper blades every six to twelve months, depending on usage and wear. Signs that your wiper blades need replacing include streaking, skipping, squeaking, or if the rubber appears split or brittle. Upgrading to winter blades before the season starts ensures you’re not caught off guard by the first snowfall.
