I just got 50"s and I'm thinking I should have gotten 58"s. I need to be able to carry surfboards (~24"s wide) and a ski box at the same time. I've been looking at new boxes and THULE has 2 that are 21", 21.2" and 25" so it will be very close, but I think I might be able to squeeze everything onto the 50"s.
