I got Michelin blades for my Dodge pickup just the other day, today driving 
back from Maine it rained most of the way and I agree they're very nice.

One of the numerous times I was over in Cal last year, I needed to get 
wiperblades for the VW. I went to the store where those three cartoon 
work and they had Michelin replacment blades. They are awesome. I don't 
believe they were crazy expensive. They wierd thing is, I never see 
them for 
sale anywhere anymore...
