    Best recommendation for CTS-V (2009) windshield wiper blades

    I've seen plenty online advertise by Rain-X, Bosch, etc. but they always say for the "CTS." Do those all work with the V2 as well OR is there is different model I need.

    The CTS blades should fit a V fine just make sure they are the correct sizes. I believe 22" driver side and 19" passenger side.
    You can go to Pep Boys, Auto Zone etc...
    No need to pay stealership price for special blades.

    They are the same sizes as cts 22" driver 19" passenger. I went with rain x latitude. Works like a charm

    The V does have specific wiper blades, only because at high speeds you need blades that won't flap and flutter when they operate. at 120+ MPH....that's important. But I agree that at most speeds other blades will work fine.

    Anything will fit.

    If you want something that will stay on the windshield at 155+MPH, you need the OEM blades.

    I have always found OEM Blades and OEM refills to fit better, look better, work better, and last longer than anything else. And this is not limited to the CTSV's or to GM.

    Yeah, I remember a couple years ago I asked my service rep if there was any reason to buy the OEM blades over any other brand.
    He said (with a straight face) that the OEM blades were better because the wing on the back of the blade holds it to the windshield when you're going 190 mph.
    I told him since I don't plan on driving 190 mph in the rain I'll just go buy some Rain X wipes.
    They work just as well and cost less.
