: Roof Rack long term ?

06-30-2012, 09:04 AM
I just installed a thule roof rack and was curious of the long term affects. The areas i see that could have an impact is the paint since the rubber feet touches certain areas (I plan on putting down the clearbra like material in those areas) and the other is the weather strip long the door. Looks like the clamp can warp that piece over time.

I would like to hear the negatives of leaving it on for long periods. Thanks!
