Default Silblade Premium Wiper Blades - 1 set Blue/1 set Black

Cleaning house and giving away (recipient pays shipping charges) 2 sets of Silblade Wiper Blades. These are a premium wiper blade with a 5 year warranty.



One set is black blades with black wiper inserts, the other set is black blades with blue wiper inserts.

Black/Black set:

WB116S (16")
WB121S (20")
WB120S (21")



Black/Blue set:

CB416 (16")
CB420 (20")
CB421 (21")



Each set was on my PT for about a month and I removed them because, in my opinion, they squeaked a little too much for me when there was just a light mist. In larger rain events, they worked fine, just squeaked a little too much for my taste. They might not squeak for anyone else, or they might not care. Both sets still have a lot of life left in them as the have a 5 year warranty. The package will weigh about 3lbs per set, so you can figure shipping charges for that weight to your location from zip code 76053.

First come - First served

The squeak settles down after about a year

Maybe, but I'm not that patient.

The first set I bought were the blue ones, to match my PT. But when they started squeaking, I thought it might have something to do with the blue insert. So I contacted Silblade and they sent me a replacement set, with black inserts, under warranty ( I had to pay shipping) that's why I have 2 sets. But the black ones squeaked, too, so off they came.

What zip code are you in? A 3lb package (for one set) via USPS should be under $10 (just guessing) and these blades retail for about $80 for a set.

I just hate to throw them away as they are still fairly new and still have a lot of life left in them.

I'm going to have to take the package to my local Post Office tomorrow to have them give me a shipping cost for a standard ground package. I checked on the USPS, UPS and FEDEX websites and using their shipping calculators and I don't trust the estimates that they are giving me.

I will post more info tomorrow.

I have a PayPal account, but let me find out first exactly how much the shipping is, I will check that tomorrow, I just want to verify that neither of us will be cheated or over-charged.

It's not just by weight anymore, that's why shipping prices went up a few years ago...it's by the size of the box.
So you'll need a box at least 22-23" in length & maybe 4" width & depth..
