anyone with these wipers getting worn out, I think I found a solution... simply order the rubber inserts from Honda... use the 2008 Accord passenger side, which is 475mm, and CR-Z passenger side which is 525mm If you need 450mm, use the new Insight's passenger side

the rubbers are a unique 9mm design, most wiper blades on the market use 6mm, 7mm, or 8mm width... you must use the 9mm width or you will have issues!


EDIT: Honda USA part numbers (I don't know if it works in oz):
76632-TM8-A21 18" (450mm) refill insert
76632-TA0-A02 or 76632-SYP-004 19" (475mm) refill insert
76622-SZT-A01 21" (525mm) refill insert

it looks like the refills are available from NWB in Japan too...


part numbers:
DW45GN = 450mm
DW48GN = 475mm
DW53GN = 525mm

if you're unsure which one you need, looking at the mounting bracket may help:


NWB says that graphite coated rubber, reduces rubber wear, as well as streaking, and chattering when the wipers are used on Rain-X (silicone water repelling) coated glass. They also say that it also helps reduce the tendency of wearing off the coatings, thus making them last longer!
http://www.nwb.co.jp/products/pdf/graphite.pdf

so definitely, these Supergrid Aero wipers were worth it. I think it's worth maintaining them with refills too...

so how about a GB with rupe for those refills?
