Can 58 Round Bars be Used Instead of 48 Bars for a Yakima Roof Rack on a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer


I was wondering if insured if getting 48 bars for a Yakima roof rack I could instead put 58 bars with it for 2008 lancer

Even though the recommended Yakima round bar roof rack combination for you 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer includes the 48" bars # Y00408, you can still use the 58" bars # Y00409 along with the BaseLine Towers # Y28TR, Round bar adapters # Y03536, and BaseClips # Y06180 (you need two sets) for a complete roof rack.

The only stipulation when going with longer crossbars is that they are no longer than the side mirrors on your vehicle. If you measure from the edge of one side mirror to the edge of the opposite side mirror and that is at least 58" then you are good to go! The weight capacity for this roof rack is 165 lbs but you will want to check the owner's manual of your Lancer to ensure that you do not exceed the roof weight capacity.
