    Would someone with a Model 3 and 18" wheels and Tesla Roof bars be able to measure and advise the height of the bars above the ground? i.e. the distance from ground to the top of the higher roof bar.
    Many thanks,
    Dave

    The rear/higher bar adds 2 and 5/8 inches to the height of the car. That's about 58 or 58 1/2" total, but difficult to measure with the slight curve of the bar to peak in middle. Best to add 2 5/8" to vehicle spec height.

    Hi DeepRed,
    Thank you very much!
    (I have a rubber boat and it needs to clear the garage door.)
    Best Regards,
    Dave
