On the note on the wiper being nice and quiet I know the taxi trick... on your water reservoir tank, fill it up with water. ADD 3-5 drops of mama-lemon dish washing liquid into the reservoir. if you can, stir it a bit... when rain, spray a bit of the washer while wiping ... then all will be SILENT.....

no side effects... rear is only being 'towed' along as the ES is front wheel drive... it won't affect steering geometry as long as your huge tyres don't rub against the wheel arch or wheel well at the back... do note that it will be much heavier, and rolling resistance will be higher from stand stil...
