It's a great rack, but when driving it does interact with the wind a bit noisily.

Appearance: they look nice but are a little bulky. Ease of installation: really easy to install, just a couple Alan screws. Price/value: IMO they are fairly priced. Quality: I have only had these on my car for about a week so I can't really speak to long term quality but they have held up well so far. Overall: overall I rate a 4 out if 5 just based on the whistle I get at about 45 mph. Maybe getting a fairing will help with that.

I did my homework on this and selected the Yakima round bars along with this fairing for my Land Rover LR3. Without the fairing, the bars howl above 70 mph. With it, the sound disappears. I don't know what the aeroblade-types sound like, but I'd venture to guess that the round bars with fairing are a better option, since the fairing would appear to direct wind not only over the bars, but also over any (moderately high) cargo on top. The wing-shaped bars look cool, but have no fairing option.
