Default Windshield wipers miss a huge spot

I installed some new RainX latitude wiper blades awhile back and they miss a huge portion right in the center of the drivers side and a small spot on the bottom of the passenger side.

Are there any wipers that work better with the trans ams huge curved windshield? My old wipers did the same thing, but when I first got the car the wipers worked good.

Any suggestions?

Those work great on both my t/a and silverado...I did have to replace one on the silverado because it was doing the same as what you mentioned. Upon closer inspection, the rubber edge that goes against the windshield had come apart from the rest of the wiper. You might check to see if yours have done the same.

The spring in your arm may be getting weak. Sometimes if you pull it all the way up and work it repeatedly hard back and forth, it will unbind the springs. But only temporarily until you replace the arm.
