Contoured Shape with Flexible Frame

The Michelin Stealth Ultra hybrid-style wiper blade for your vehicle guarantees excellent results when it comes to keeping your windshield clean. It combines the contoured, aerodynamic shape of a beam-style wiper with the flexibility and multiple pressure points of a frame-style wiper to produce a blade that won't miss spots or cause streaking.


SmartFlex Suspension System Provides Consistent Results

The Stealth uses patented SmartFlex frame arms and hinges for superior windshield-cleaning results. The 2 secondary arms flex to allow the blade to conform to the shape of your windshield better than standard frames can. The secondary arms also provide strong lateral support to the wiper. The SmartFlex hinges are designed to work together with the secondary arms, enhancing their ability to hold down the ends of the blade. The secondary arms transfer downward pressure to 4 tertiary arms, resulting in a total of 8 pressure points along the blade for even windshield contact. The SmartFlex system ensures that the blade applies pressure along its entire length, no matter the shape of your windshield or the pressure exerted by your wiper's arms


Aerodynamic, Hinged Hard Cover

Cover portion of Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper

The Stealth Ultra has a hard cover that prevents the wiper blade from accumulating sleet, snow, and leaves. By resisting buildup - and adding to the overall strength of the blade - the hard cover ensures that the wiper can weather the tough challenges of Mother Nature and consistently keep your windshield clear.


The hard cover's hinges work independently of the hinges in the wiper frame, which allows the blade to flex so that it conforms perfectly to the shape of your windshield. Because the wiper makes consistent contact with your windshield along the length of the blade, it can completely remove sleet, rain, and snow with no missed spots.


The cover has an aerodynamic shape to resist the effects of wind. This ensures that the blade resists being lifted by the wind and maintains even pressure on your windshield at all times.


Graphite-Coated Rubber Squeegee for Superior Performance

Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper 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.


Fast Installation with EZ LOK Connectors

Michelin Stealth Ultra 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 Stealth Ultra can be easily installed on most types of wiper arms, including those with the following connector styles:

Video Transcript for Michelin Stealth Ultra Wiper Blades Installation - 2014 Toyota Camry

Today on our 2014 Toyota Camry, we're going to be test fitting the Michelin Stealth Ultra Wiper Blades. These are a beam style, with a hard back cover. For the driver's side, we'll use part number MCH8526, for the passenger's side, we'll use part number MCH8518. To begin our installation of our blades, the first thing we're going to want to do is remove our existing or our factory wiper blades. This has a lever-style lock right here, so we'll just take a small screwdriver, pull up on it to release that lever. We'll then slide our blade down our wiper arm, and release it from the J hook style arm that we've got here. We're now going to take our new Stealth Ultra wiper blade, and we're going to see inside of our top of our wiper blade here. We've got a square side, and then on this side it's a little more rounded.

That rounded side is the part we're going to want to put into the throat of our hook here. Just slide it down on, and then slide it out to the end of the arm firmly until it clips into position, just like that. With our driver's side taken care of, we'll now make our way around to the passenger's side, and switch that one. Our existing passenger's side blade uses the same lever-style lock there, so a screwdriver will pop that up. Slide the blade down the arm, just like we did on the driver's side, and it comes right off. Now grab our new blade here, and again, rounded side into the the throat of the J hook, and pull out firmly until we hear it click, which will indicate that we've got it secured in place. Just like that, we've got our blades installed, and we're ready to hit the road.

That will complete today's installation of the Michelin Stealth Ultra wiper blades system, using part number MCH8526 on the driver's side, and part number MCH8518 here on the passenger's side, on our 2014 Toyota Camry. .

Chevrolet Equinox

I purchased two windshield wiper blades for my Chevy Equinox from etrailer because they had the best price and the items would be shipped quickly. I'm a Prime member of that large online retail site and their in stock blades wouldn't ship for 2 weeks+. I received my blades in a very reasonable time and my car is happy. Thank you.

I haven't used these wipers in the rain yet, but they fit well and are of good quality. The help I received at etrailer was excellent . They answered my questions and helped me with my order, the shipping was quick and the wipers were packaged well. I would defiantly recommend etrailer and will be using them again.

The wiper blades seem great. They were easy to install. It hasn't rained or snowed yet. But they work fine with the windshield washer. I was surprised that they took a week before shipping, but UPS delivered on time, and my old wiper blades were still operational!

Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers


Terrible. Used their page to determine wipers that fit my three vehicles and purchased. Received the wipers in decent ship time. Went to install and wipers did not fit on two of my three vehicles. Due to taking the old wipers off, they clip broke, so I had no choice but to run down to [online] and pay $31ea for wipers that did fit. I consider that very poor service if you recommend wiper blades that don’t fit the vehicle. Cost me additional time, money, and effort.

Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers


Changing out windshield wipers is seemingly impossible when it comes to removing the old wiper. After finally getting all 3 old wipers off, I was able to get the new ones on without any trouble. Hopefully they will come off easily when it is time to change them out. I used these same wipers on another vehicle recently and have been happy with them.

Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers


DELIVERY WAS AS PREDICTED, UNFORTUNATELY ONE OF THE WIPERS WAS MISSING AN ADAPTOR FOR MY MODEL. I HAVE ENCOUNTERED THIS PROBLEM ON TWO SEPERATE OCCAASIONS FROM DIFFERENT SUPPLIERS THEREFORE I CAN ONLY CONCLUDE THAT THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE MANUFACTURES PACKAGING.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The EZ LOK connectors will allow this wiper blade to attach to most blade styles out there. Depending on the original wiper blade style it may be required to replace the standard connector on the blade with one of the included alternate connectors.
