Actually, now a days OEMs are not giving good wipers so its better to replace them after 1 season of rain i.e after an year. Also, it is advisable to use a branded wiper set and not universal size. See, I have used Hella Dyna wipers for City Ivtec and ya both have different sizes mentioned on packing itself. The branded wipers are made as per OEM
Good accessory shops keep branded wipers. The Dyna pair costed me INR 1100/-.
