I've been meaning to check out Rack Attack after I get my winter setup. How much was the Thule base bar setup? :O

I'm still debating between a cargo box or ski attachments. Boxes are pretty pricey :S

Price wise, another good place for roof racks is REI if you're willing to drive down there to pick them up. They usually have great sales around US Thanksgiving, picked up a Thule T2 hitch mounted bike rack from them once and it worked out to be about $200 cheaper after gas/exchange rate. Their normal prices are alright but it might not be worth the drive down unless they have a sale going on.

Have you considered the Hankook W409 iPike and the Firestone Winterforce as alternatives?

They wear out pretty quick, especially if you use them on dry roads when it's still fairly warm out.

Got my bent winter rim fixed up at Panthers (good service/no probs) and my Xice-2's mounted and balanced at OK Tire Marine. I had WS-50 Blizzak's from over 6 years ago so I'm excited to try out the Michelin's this time around.
