Default Roof Cross Bars - CargoLoc Roof Top 2 PC. 52" Aluminum Cross Bars - Lockable

I bought these the other day for our Tribeca (2013)... They are a little tight up front but work just fine (will not go all the way to the front of the OE rails but close (maybe 5 inches away).

As good as OE bars that I have had in the past and not very noisy at all...

And only $58 shipped via prime members.

Any wind noise? I saw a few reviews saying there was wind noise at 35mph.

Actually when you say they will get within 5 inches of the front of the rail that is good. The factory aero bars placement guide recommends a distance of 12 inches back from the seam at the front of the rail. They look nice.

Hi,
no not really - this car for the most part is doing local trips and not much highway traffic (one run every day for 4 miles or so). It gets about the same. They have been great, and with gas in our area at $1.88 I don't know it is a factor today.

I got a private IM about these... yes a year later they are still good to go. Never took them off the car. A little loud but the Tribeca is silent enough that you get used to it semi quick.

I impulse purchased this before the beginning of last winter. Just a word of warning, they start to "whistle" past 30mph. I've gotten used to it over time and just convince myself that I have a big turbo. I'm too lazy to find a decent solution to fix the sound. Maybe something to fill in the gap underneath the bar, since I feel like the whistling originates from there.

Yes you are correct... I forgot about that and filled them in with an old door jam seal I had from an old project.... no problems after that. I think some clear tape would actually do the job just fine.

We just bought these and the whistling is really loud, esp on the interstate. Any other solution? Can't beat the price, but I'm going to take them back to Dick'so if the whistling can't be remedied.

Hi - sorry so long for whatever my notifications for this post did not update.

- I did two things.. 1. I validated with covering the bottom (which is open) with clear tape. Remove 99% of any whistling. 2. Found some rubber (like a door seal and pushed it into the opening.

I've got the 54" Thule aero bars with the rubber inserts in the top for the track system, as long as the rubber inserts are installed there is no whistle at all. I cut the rubber pieces in half so when I install my board rack I can still have half the rubber in the track and it still no whistle.
