    PIAA appears to be defunct or at least unreachable, at least in the US, I tried all three phone numbers on the website: The 888 one in the footer lead to a distributor, with no option to just talk to a person anyway. The about page has two numbers, the 503 had "call could not be completed as dialed", and the 800 number immediately said they had 'a special promotion' and asked if I was over 50 and when I selected no, it just hung up. It was a scam line!

    So, do any other brands of silicone wipers fit a 2018 Prius Prime? I tried Silblade Flex from Amazon and didn't get the right adaptors even though Amazon said they should fit.

    That's the right adaptor, but I was really hoping I could find silicone blades. From what I can tell they are just better

    @Zeppo Shanski did you perhaps mean to reply to a different (but similar) thread? I don't see anything about an '05 (unless that's not a year?) in this thread, and also it's specifically about silicon wipers, not natural rubber like the ones you've linked.
