Optimal Wiper Blades ?

Stock Focus wiper blades - front and back are too small. They leave large unswept area on the windshield. What's the longest wiper blades that can be put on the driver, passenger, and rear wiper motors without causing interference or lift off the curvature of the glass ?

Will large blades slow down the wiper motor or make the blades hard to park?

larger blades because of the surface area will make the motor work harder, i would just get a better blade in stock size.

i actually got 1 inch smaller on my driver side, just so the driver and passenger sides matched in size alittle better.

i have the bosch icons.
