- Thule 591 roof carrier whistle…
Ran 591’s on the roof of the car for 7 years, just left them on, never heard anything from them. Even in extreme winds nothing, only issues i had and tbh wasnt really an issue was when the car was standing and it rained used to get a river of water down the windscreen when i moved the car, other than that nothing they did the job perfectly.Posted 4 years agostu1972Member
Really terrible whistle with x3 591’s on a mk5 Golf. Anything over 30mph and it whistles. Badly.
I bought the new Thule wingbars to go with the carriers which are actually excellent. Uber quiet and return good mpg however thats thrown out the window when the Pro-rides are on.Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
Well you can’t expect to have stuff on the roof and for not to hear anything. Wing bars on their own are pretty quiet, but the bike racks are not aerodynamically shaped so you’re going to get some noise from them, whether it’s a whistle or a roar. Just depends if its articulately noticeable in the car cabin. I don’t notice it in my SMax with wing bars and three 591’s unless I listen specifically for it.Posted 4 years agodabbleMember
sounds like a frigging singing Mogwai on the roof!?
Actually laughed for about 5 minutes at that 😆 Best description i have ever heard for rack whistle. My roof rack on my Connect whistles like buggery, i’m gonna be laughing my ass off on the motorway when i think of that.Posted 4 years ago
