I was going to ditch the Thule bars (which I already have) and get the Yakimas but then....

I contacted Subaru and they told me the weight limit on their factory rack is 150 pounds.

So if this is indeed the case I am not sure if the Yakima or Thule system would really give me anything more than using the factory cross bars--which have a 30 inch spread and therefore are the same as the Yakima bars and wider than the Thule bars.

Does anyone use this setup?

If so, are they noisy on the highway? I use my thule setup with a wind fairing so it is relatively quiet.
