Re: Roof Rack

I had the carbon fiber ones, they never did line up all that well, they were 2 pieces on each side, I didn't like how they mated up in the middle. I would suggest going with the fiberglass ones you have to paint. they are done a much better way and look way better when done IMO.

I'd probably do a coolant drain and refill if never been done.

Re: What psi should I keep winter 16" tires at? (star_deceiver)

between 32 and 35 psi. If you are seeing more wear on the center of the tire than the sides, then I would suggest a lower psi (32) if there is more wear on the outer edges than the center I would suggest a little higher psi (35-37).
If they are wearing even then I would keep them around the 32-35 mark.
