Anyone who have their roof rack installed getting a whistle, hum or flapping noise at high speeds ?

I get a high pitched whistle no matter with or without skis on my rack....

I found fairings for sale from Yakima, Thule, Rhino Rack but can't seem to find any fairings that fit flat bars/oval cross members.

All of the ones I found are for roof rack/cages or round cross bars.

I need ones that fit the slim, wide, and oval type bars... Hate to modify them but if that's all is available, I might have to ....

Anyone have a source for a good fitting, secure, wind fairing ?

I was wondering whether there would be wind noise. I have yet to get cross bars, but was thinking that I would only use them when needed, and remove otherwise, to avoid this. But, in the end, that may prove to be too much of a pain in the ___.

How bad is the noise on a scale of 1 (can sort of hear it if I turn the radio off and listen real hard) to 10 (WHAT DID YOU SAY!)?

The whistling starts at 30MPH and increases to loud roaring whistle at 70MPH.

About noise level of 6 maximum.

The radio can drown out the noise pretty much but can't drive with the Pano roof cover opened...
