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 Windshield Wiper Blade Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper blade, available in a size to fit your vehicle right here at etrailer dot com. As you can see with my old wiper blades, it's a streaky, messy wipe. Check out our new Michelin Stealth Ultra wiper blades. Nice. This hybrid-style blade provides flexibility with a hard cover. The Smart Flex suspension insures that 8 pressure points provide consistent contact with your windshield. The hard plastic cover is durable and helps prevent snow and ice from building up on the blade. The hard cover is hinges so it will not interfere with the suspension.

It features a natural rubber, graphite-coated squeegee that provides a clean, quiet, streak-free wipe. The aerodynamic shape prevents the wiper blade from being lifted by the wind and the black powder coat finish helps resist rust and corrosion. Wiper blade sizes may vary from driver side to passenger side, so you want to be sure to check with your owner's manual or etrailer dot com's fit guide to see what size you need. Now that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. It's going to come with everything you need to connect it to your top lock, side lock, side pin, regular pin and J-style wiper blade arms. The vehicle we'll be working with today uses the J-style adapter.

All of the adapters clip onto the rod about the same way. We'll clip it on like so. Now we can head over to our vehicle. We're here on the driver's side. Let's go ahead and lift up our arm. Then we can open up our blade like so.

This is going to reveal a little button we can push to release it from the adapter. We're just going to push in underneath, and now I'm going to push the arm towards the blade, like that. Once we've got it slid off the adapter, we can remove the whole blade. It's very simple. When changing your wiper blades, it's not a bad idea to put some padding down on your windshield just in case the arm swings back and hits it. That way, it doesn't crack the windshield.

We can grab our new Michelin wiper blades. I'm going to angle the adapter up like so. I'll bring the arm through and then I'm going to clip it on the adapter and pull out until it snaps into place, like that. As you can see, it's locked in, it's not coming out. We can go ahead and lower it down and repeat the same process for the passenger side. That's going to complete our look at the Michelin Stealth Ultra windshield wiper blade.

Could not have asked for a better experience. They had the product I was looking for and the prices, including shipping, was several dollars cheaper than [online]. Product was delivered on the date they said it would be and was fast, 2 days.


Both products are great.

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.

Very good
Alan H - 12/01/2017


Order arrived on the day promised. The first 100 miles the tires worked great. Haven't used the new wipers. Always a pleasure to do business with this company


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!


Needed wipers for my truck. etrailer stocks them and shipped them promptly. As always food fast service with quality choices. Excellent customer service.


product was shipped very quickly, wipers were in as-new condition and work great. installed them right as a rainstorm was rolling in.

I really liked them but had to replace them after someone messed with them a prank factory wipers from the dealership not nearly as good. so it goes.
JS - 11/02/2016


Fit perfectly. You made it easy to find the right part for my trailer.


it's good!

Ryan - 07/08/2015


my old blades made a loud nasty sound, like dry rubber scraping on glass
probably because it was dry rubber scraping on glass
these are smooth and quiet
coincidentally it was raining the day i received them so i was able to see how they worked right away


These are great, just installed. Haven't used them yet in a snow storm, hoping they work as well as the 5 year old pair they replaced.


Much better than my original wipers. No more skipping


Wipers were delivered as advertised, fairly priced and shipped quickly.



Great Service and Great Product! Thank you


Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers

eTRAILER has got it together. Great customer service from the time I ordered until the time I received my wiper. Wiper fits perfectly on my car. Matches the other wiper. Easy to replace the old wiper with the attachments included with the new Michelin blades.


Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers

Everything looks good. Easy to install. It's a beautiful sunny day so no test for the wiper blades yet but I have great confidence in the Michelin name. Good value as well.


Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers

The wiper blades continue to work after one year use. They smoothly remove rain from the front window and are a huge improvement from the scratchy ones they replaced. I would recommend this product.


Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers

I have bought michelin stealth wipers for last 15 years. they last 2-3 years . good wipers


Review from a similar Stealth Ultra in Windshield Wipers

I found these hard to find wiper blades on They were delivered extremely fast in exellent condition and very well packaged.


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.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.
