Give you guys a heads up on wiper blade sizes. OEM size is 26" driver & 14" passenger.

If you want to get the all season wiper blades such as Rain X Latitude or Bosch ICON, you need to opt to 22" driver & 16" passenger side. Currently, there are no 14" in all season. The difference from the OEM wiper blades is the low profile & brackless design. Looks cleaner & performs 10x better.

I'm using Duralast Winter blades in those sizes & it works perfectly. The passenger side BARELY touches the edge of the windshield where it meets with the rubber connecting the body.

So our stock wipers that came with the car are 26" and 14".

I'm just a bit confused by what you said. Are your wipers the winter wipers, at 22" and 16"?

And are these the ones that you said are "cleaner & performs 10x better"? Or were you talking about the stock wipers there?

The wipers I have on my car are the winter blades at 22" & 16"...
I said that these are all season wiper blades, they are not winter or OEM. These you shouldn't have to change at all once you install them. Plus they're low profile without the traditional brackets. I'm going to get these today.

Here's a couple pictures...Let you guys know the shortest size they have for Rain X Latitude is 16". It just barely touches the edge of the windshield on the passenger side, even though it says it won't fit on Rain X site.

:12: Nissan did a pretty good job trying to get you back to the dealer for wipers...

Save Yourself Some Time: The Nissan Versa's 14" passenger side replacement windshield wiper is very hard to find in the newer-style beam blades. The 12" rear is also very hard to find because it’s a special rear blade that fits the special rear arm.

After a ton of research, I've only found one aftermarket set-up that has both the 26" and 14" for the front and the special 12" rear: 'Trico NeoForm Beam Blades' on the front (yes, they have a 14") and 'Trico Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade' on the rear (yes, it fits the special rear arm). All of the above come with step-by-step, illustrated removal and replacement instructions - easy install. Got the whole set-up online.

That's exactly how my blades fit... They still work, but it bothers my OCDness that they aren't PERFECT if I think about it too much :)
