Windshield-Hugging Frame-Style Design

Michelin RainForce windshield wiper frame hinges

The Michelin RainForce wiper blade for your vehicle improves visibility in rainy conditions. The metal frame is hinged so that it flexes to spread downward pressure over multiple points along the blade. This ensures that the wiper follows the contours of your windshield, resulting in a thorough wipe with no streaks.


Graphite-Coated Rubber Squeegee for Superior Performance

Michelin RainForce windshield wiper frame Squeegee

The natural rubber squeegee is made with proprietary processing techniques to ensure that it outperforms the competition. And the squeegee has a graphite coating to make sure the wiper glides smoothly across your windshield. This graphite coating helps to eliminate skipping, which can leave behind a washboard pattern of water. It also helps keep your wiper quiet so you won't be annoyed by squealing or chattering sounds.


Vented Design for Consistent Wiping Action in Wind

Holes in frame of Michelin RainForce windshield wiper

The vented design lets air flow freely through the frame, allowing the wiper to maintain consistent pressure on your windshield - even in high winds. So whether you're caught in windy conditions or just driving on the highway, you'll still have a clear view through your windshield.


Rugged Construction Ensures Long Wiper Life

The metal wiper frame has a powder coat finish that resists rust and ensures a long life. The frame hinges are constructed of metal to add strength and durability, and the squeegee has a stainless steel flexor that provides a corrosion-proof backbone for the blade.


Fast Installation with EZ LOK Connectors

Michelin RainForce windshield wiper connector

To install the blade, rotate the connector piece on the blade to fit the type of connector that's on your car. (Some wiper arm styles require that you replace the standard connector on the blade with one of the included alternate connectors.) Then clip the wiper blade onto the car's connector. The wiper blade will click into place so that you know it's securely installed.


The RainForce can be easily installed on most types of wiper arms, including those with the following connector styles:

Video Transcript for Michelin RainForce Wiper Blades Review

Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Michelin Rainforce Windshield Wiper Blades. Well, these kinda fall into the categories when it comes to your windshield wiper blades. These are just gonna be kinda your standard blade. There's not gonna be anything super fancy. They're not gonna be for, you know, scraping or stuff like that. But I live in the Midwest, so we don't see a whole lotta snow.

So I'm mainly just wanting to get rain off my windshield. So this one's gonna be great for that. There's a couple of things that really are nice to have in features when it comes to windshield wiper blades. And one, I like the powder-coated finish. I just wanna make sure they're not gonna rust away, 'cause over time, you're gonna see a little bit of decoloration and nastiness right here.

So one's it gonna look better. And then two, it does have these little slits right here. So that's just gonna prevent any type of wind from picking it up, whether you're just going down the highway and it's super, super windy, or you're in one of those car washes. You know, right at the very end, they put that big blower on there and you can kinda see, your windshield wiper's kinda floating up. So that's what those slots are for.

It's gonna prevent that from happening. These do come in a lot of different sizes. So the one we have for my car, I use the Fit Guide on our website and it just directed me to the 22s. So some of them have, you know, a 22 and then a 19 or whatever. So just use our Fit Guide, it's gonna do all the work for ya, and it'll put the wiper blades that are gonna fit your vehicle right in front of you.

So it makes it really easy to shop at our site. These are pretty entry-level wiper blade, but it really isn't that hard to swap them out, but they do have a significant amount of bend. This is a little bit more flexed than what we saw on my OEM ones, just maybe by a half inch or so. You can't really tell, but it is a lot more flexible, and you can see, we have four different points of contact with our blade. So one, two, three, and four. So it's going to not miss any spots. That's my biggest pet peeve. When I turn on my windshield wipers and there's this one little streak in like, the very middle that it doesn't get. So with these, you don't really have to worry about that. Let me just show you them in action. And it isn't going to interfere with the, the fluid that goes through. So as you can see, it takes all that out. So that's a big thing with me. If I'm gonna put wiper blades on here, I wanna make sure that they're gonna get all of the water and these do just that. So I think these are gonna be a great option for you. The install for these are super, super easy. It took me maybe, I don't know, 30 seconds to do. So stick around, we're gonna show you how we did it. First things first, you can just grab whatever blade that you want, 'cause they're gonna be the universal for the right and the left. So now, and you just fold your windshield or your blades up, and there's gonna be a little tab on the other side, you can kinda see it. So you just wanna push this in. I want you to push that in. You're gonna go away from the bend of this. So you're gonna come this way. Don't force it, it'll go. There we go. We can pull this through. And then you kinda notice how it was before, so we had the rounded edge in the middle. So it's gonna go on just like this. So now, we just kinda get it in there. And then once it's kinda seated, you should just be able to kinda push it out. And you wanna make sure it snaps into place. Can I give it a good wiggle to make sure it's not gonna come back off There we go. So now that's on there. That's it. It's that simple, and we are done. We just had to do the other side. And that's basically it, for our look at the Michelin Rainforce Front Windshield Wiper Blades..

Review from a similar RainForce in Windshield Wipers


The wipers had a wrong type of attachme nt,


Comments
You mentioned that the wiper blades came with the wrong type of attachment. I wanted to see if you could explain in more detail. They typically come with a few different adapters.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/26/2022
The blade package only displays a hook arm instruction and a side pin instruction. My 2013 MINI is neither of these attachments. It’s a straight arm with a hole for a locking pin. I didn’t open the package, but I can see there are no adapters in it. Also the blades sent were 20” and 21”, but the blades on the car are 18” and 19”. Thanks for responding,
-- comment by: Mark - 04/26/2022
I know that the wiper blades come with an EZ Lock connector and it does not show every type of connector that is compatible on the packaging. As long as your connector is one that is pictured on the product page it would work for you. If the blades do not work for you, would you be able to send a picture of your blades?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/26/2022
I am now on travel. I will open the package and give it another try next week when I return. I am hopeful they will work, even with the extra length.

Once I figured out how to remove the old wipers putting these on was simple. Fit contours to windshield. Now the real test begins, actual use.

The product arrived very promptly and in excellent condition. Before I placed the order, etrailer customer service rep Rachel helped me over the phone with my choice and went above and beyond with customer care. While this order is my firs with etrailer, it will not be my last, and I will recommend this company to friends and family for its unbeatable combination of low prices, quality goods and customer care.

The Michelin wiper blades are top quality. Easy to install. Going forward I will order all my wiper blades from etrailer.com. All the items I purchased were nicely packaged for shipping and delivery.

Review from a similar RainForce in Windshield Wipers


I bought a pair of wipers for my wife's car in an auto parts store. They were terrible.
I looked online and found etrailer sells windshield wipers. I went by etrailer reviews and bought these Michelins. They work great and a year later they still perform beautifully. Highly recommend them. Great service, great products and a great company to do business with.

To the etrailer.com,
I want to thank
you for the professionalism that was given to me regarding my order. I was given options and my product was fast and efficiently delivered in a protective box and coating to avoid delivery damage. I am in love with this company and how they handle business. That is something hard to find today with companies and online order but etrailer has overall made online shopping worth ordering. Thank you for your expertise service.

  • Replacement Windshield Wiper Blades for 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser That Has 3 Wipers
    To purchase wiper blades for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser you will need to order an additional blade of the shorter size. For instance if you choose the Michelin RainForce set you will order: 16 inch blade # MCH3716 - Quantity 1 14 inch blade # MCH3714 - Quantity 2 The shorter blade can be either a 13 inch or 14 inch depending on the manufacturer of the wiper blade. I've linked a video that shows how the Michelin RainForce blades install.

  • Recommendation and Fit for Windshield Wipers for a 1969 Ford Mustang
    Yes, the Michelin wiper, # MCH3716, will fit your classic 1969 Ford Mustang! Your vehicle takes 16 inch blades for the driver and passenger side. I have included a link to the other options we have that will fit your 'stang. I personally recommend the Rain-X, # RX5079274-2, which is what I use on my vehicles. They have proven to work quite well.
