Default Remove my cross bars?

So in my new Outback Sport I noticed the "wind" noise, and after perusing this forum for a bit I think its the roof crossbars making the noise. I doubt I'll be mounting anything on the roof anyhow, and after also reading about them rusting on I'm wondering if I shouldn't just remove them and store them until I do need them. I like how they look though. If I do take them off is there any chance that the mount threads are gonna rust?

find replacement screws that are the same thread type. Put some anti-rust on them and there you go.

I always leave mine off due to the whistling sound they make. I do use them a lot when hauling my canoe. My regular use, I suppose, keeps them working well, no rust. I use a torx bit in my drill driver to whip them on and off as needed. There are a lot of threads on the bolts so using a power driver really helps.
