You could look into modifying them and using the stock brackets under the gutters. The q-towers then sit more inward. Do a search for modifying the q-clips and you will see what I mean. I gave up on carrying my bike on the roof, I have a hitch mounted rack for that now. No longer am I taking off the front wheel.
