Question for all, are the Thule mounts a lower profile than the OEM? Not a fan of how high the OEM sit. Reminds me of the old Nissan ExterraI have the same set-up as Attaboy's picture and didn't bother to measure distance. I just set them at the "B" and "C" pillars because it looks cleaner than being in between or beyond the pillars (if that makes any sense.) The sunroof opens no problem and there's no wind noise if you install the Wingbars in the right direction.
I use an XL Thule box on the roof and have now problem with balance or overhang.
