What Thule Roof bars?

Post by JimmyMature » Wed Aug 30, 2017 1:29 pm

Hi all, the LR roof rails are in their way to me as I type. So I now need to look at the roof bars and feet. I will of course get the wing bars but the feet are causing me a bit of a headache.

I've been in contact with roofracks.co.uk who have been very helpful as I'm concerned at the bar options I'm thinking about will be a problem I.e. Too low to the roof.

The first picture is the roof box I already have. I am worried the feet to connect to the bars will touch the roof. Roofbox.co.uk have a concern that they box would also touch the shark-fin Ariel!

Other than the LR version what bars are people using for attaching a box to?

I have that combo (TU9583B - Thule WingBar Edge black and TU6312B - Thule Pacific 200 roof box) and clearance of the clamps is minimal but fine.

Hi. Not sure if it helps but I have the wingbars but a Exodus 470L box. I purchased an adaptor lit that allowed me to use T bolts, so it sat on the bars. I spaced the bars in line with the pin holes on the roof bars, and the box sat in front of the fin. I have pics of the wingbars on the car if it helps

Bump for views on roof bars/box.

Need to see pictures of a Thule Atlantis on Thule Wingbar Edge bars.

They look too low to the roof and would cause issues with the clamps on the box.


Any advice, pictures would be appreciated.


Cheers,

Those Wingbar Edge ones are perfect. Very flush and perfect fit.
