I was unable to find a way to get information from Thule about using this product. I wanted to put kayaks plus paddle boards on the roof, and was advised to get 58+" crossbars for extra room. Thule has a buying guide, which recommended the 53" crossbars for my vehicle. From what I've learned, the slots on the crossbar to attach to the footings do not extend the full length, so I was unable to use the longer crossbars. I went with the cheaper, square cross bars, and despite the caution of noise, we had none during our 4 hour freeway/highway drive. I have to admit, these AeroBlades would've looked much cooler, but the traditional Thule square crossbars did the trick wonderfully.
