Roof Carrier for Bike Wheels on a 2015 Toyota Highlander with Factory Bars


I have a 2015 Toyota Highlander with the factory crossbars. I was looking for a fork for front wheel holder to compliment my bike trays. I would like to be able to carry the front wheels on the top of the car instead of inside. Thanks

For your roof bike racks, if you have 9mm quick release skewers, you can use the SeaSucker Hogg, part # 298-BA1580 to replace a bolt of your rear axle and carry your front wheel in line with your bike's rear tires. This carrier includes a stabilizing strap to hold your wheel steady while you're driving and keep it from spinning.

Or, if you'd rather not replace a bolt, or have a larger skewer, then Thule's Wheel-On Roof Mounted Carrier, part # TH593 can be used to carry your bike wheel side-by-side with your existing carriers. This carrier will mount to any roof rack with adjustable, universal clamps, and can even fold flat when not in use.

In either case, if you haven't got a cable lock, I recommend adding a small cable lock like Master Lock's Quantum 20, part # 8156DPS for added security for your wheel and bike.
