BSA motor sports model 333

Wheels Specification:
Model: 333
Size: 17"x7"
Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3
Offset: +40mm
Finish: Black with Machine Lip
Weight: 20 lbs

I just swapped the rims and kept the stock tires with the TPMS system.

It is a Thule rack I got installed from http://www.racknroad.com/

With all the parts and labor it cost around $500. I already had the locks, attachments, load bar, ... I just needed the custom railing and connectors. FYI... they do drill holes in the roof for the custom railing.

You have a touring model...so why did you remove the crossbars that came from the factory (that could have accepted a factory designed ski rack) only to drill holes in your roof and install new crossbars? Is there some other attachment that you use?

I do have a Touring/Navi model. I have the Thule Ski, Bike and Box from my prior SUV that had Thule. The Thule rack is more versatile in my opinion and I would have had to buy the attachments for my bike and ski racks to fit the OEM Touring racks. With the new cross bars I have the ability to adjust the width based upon the load and use any Thule accessory without having to worry about the fit. I also like the look better than the OEM stock rack.
