There is Now a New Windshield Wiper for Off-Roaders


You probably don’t give those two blades that sweep muck off your windshield much thought until they start streaking or squeaking. The rubber experts at BFGoodrich, however, say that trucks and SUVs that find themselves in slushy and dirty conditions need more than just the basics.

That’s why they’ve licensed their name to Pylon, which recently introduced the BFGoodrich Off-Road wiper blade. The off-road blades come in sizes popular with SUVs and pickups such as the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota 4Runner, and Ram 1500.

The rugged wipers are said to have a special rubber sweep that can handle mud and dirt better than a typical off-the-shelf wiper. Costing $79.99 for a pair, the wipers are far from cheap, but they are only slightly more expensive than typical heavy-duty wipers. Pylon also makes wipers under license for Michelin, which sells blades in major auto-parts stores.

The BFGoodrich windshield wipers also look the part thanks to an outer shell with an imprint of the company’s popular All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires. That outer shell is functional, too, as it’s designed to protect the wipers from rocks and debris.
