Whistling while you work is great; whistling while you drive is just downright annoying. So, if your roof rack is whistling an unhappy tune, quiet it down with the Rhino-Rack Wind Fairing. Designed for aerodynamics and style, the Rhino-Rack wind fairing not only puts a sock in that annoying whistle, it adds a great look to your ride’s roof rack setup.
The fairing’s slippery, aerodynamic shape directs the airflow around your roof rack. This delivers a dramatic decrease in wind noise, so the only thing you and your passengers hear is the sweet melody cranking out of your speakers. And, while reducing the racket, that same aero shape and the sleek black finish give your racks a serious boost in style.
Thanks to the universal design and multiple sizes, the Rhino roof rack air deflector attaches easily to all Rhino-Rack racks, and most other top-brand roof racks, too. And, Rhino-Rack includes everything you need—fairing, bracket assemblies, Allen key and instructions. Best yet, Rhino-Rack backs your Wind Fairing with a breezy 5-year warranty.

It looks great !! The only drawback for me is after installing the Rhino-Rack it continues to be warped in the center. I've reinstalled it twice and can't get it to straighten out. I'm going to try one more time. I am still very happy with my purchase and plan to get one for my wife's car.

I think it definitely helps with wind noise reduction,the tricky part was getting the right size. Originally went with the 44inch and that was too big. Downgraded to 38 and it's a good size inbetween the rack mounts. Only downside I've notice is that on both 44 and 38 the putter rubber mounts on either side don't touch the the roof

Pros: - Overall fit is good and it was easy to install. - Good price too at $60. - MOST IMPORTANTLY AND WHY I BOUGHT IT... it stopped noise and howling coming from the rack. Cons: - I think due to the width of the fairing, it creates a very un-aerodynamic angle and I have noticed my gas mileage dropping about 2 mpg. I due feel the wind resistance while driving too. This is definitely a drawback. Overall, which one can you live with more? Mpg drop or Noise?
