I wanted to change my blades to silver ones, but I wasn't sure if the size fit the ones on the car. Does anyone know?

I just bought some for my car (not silver, just normal black ones) and they're 19" for one and 21" for the other. I'm not sure which one's the left and right one though.

19" on the passenger side, 21" on the drivers side. I put some on my car a few weeks ago, and I think I should have gone maybe 1" longer on each blade (20"/22"). But they work just fine......

You could paint them silver with rustoleum or something to that effect. Unless you are going for the CHROME look. /me shudders.

canadian tire motomaster teflon wipers are pretty good. i had them on my old car.

thanks for the topic
now i have to go get some after work. rain season now.

by the way, u guys ever seen those retarded dual blade wipers?? i tried them last year and the design was flawed. it only worked OK during INSANE rain. But on the average rainfall, the first blade wipes the glass dry enough that the second blade just squeeks and causes the thing to constantly hop and rattle. its ends up making theglass just messy and splattered. so i returned them. dont waste your money on this design.

by the way guys, 19" + 21" wipers are in my opinion too small for gen5.

i put on 21" + 22". they fit nice without interfering with eachother... in fact, i think theres enough room for 22" + 24".

youre all wondering "who CARES, its just wipers".. i dunno, rain and snow distracts me so theres nothing like a good set of wipers.

I also use a layer of Prestone Windshield Rain Relief, and it works wonderfully, especially when the rain POURS down like mad - then I just put my wipers on intermittent and it's all good.

Ive used Bosch wiper blades on all my cars, and will put some on my Prelude when I need some. They work great, and last for a long time too. They do cost more than most blades, but are well worth in in a downpour at night, believe me!

well silver is a sick color, but becareful because it might reflect sun in ur eyes sometimes. in old cars, the black wears away revealing silver, which blinds you sometimes.
