    What wiper blades/ (oil filter?)

    When I walk into my local auto parts store, how do I ask for wiper blades for a Delorean, I'm assuming they don't have Delorean listed on their drop down computer listings. I see I can easily order oil filters right from DMC, but is there an off the shelf unit that not only fits but is a quality product that won't hurt anything?

    As always, thanks in advance.

    I use the Bosch Icon 20a blades on my car. They look so much better since there is no "frame" on them.

    Older posting from 2011 for crossover parts listings but should be helpful to you as a good
    resource.

    Lots of oil and air filters on Amazon if you do a search for a Delorean. You can get the
    part numbers there too.

    I bought a 6 pack of oil filters from DMCMW about 5 years ago. Still got 2 or 3 left. As far as the blades go, as long as the size is right it doesn't really matter but I did get a set of nice framed blades when I first got my car. I got good quality Michelin set because I wanted them to look factory(not crazy about the way the new styles look) I still have them on my car, used twice in 10 years.

    blades

    Does anyone sell pure silicone wiper blades?
    It's my understanding they will last forever...

    You could just get the Houston wiper blades. They're comically inexpensive (GM wanted $92 for a pair of wipers on my G8 ).

    Great, thanks for the quick responses.

    Tires are going to be an issue, I'm having trouble finding a matching set of 4 from any manufacturer.

    I'm sure with some research I will come up with something but would rather not use mix matched tire pairs.

    I think all of the trusted DeLorean parts vendors sell the correct Bosch oil filter, too. Along with the correct drain plug crush washer. For some of them the washer is included with the filter.

    There are several other threads you can check out and post up on about tires for the car. Like the one in this link. Almost 80 posts on that one alone.
