1) Can you order a new RAV4 without roof rails?


2) Does the 18" tire option increase seating height and ground clearance? (or are they matted with low profile tires?)


Thanks

Cross bars are optional, rails are standard, rails can be removed but you need to buy parts to cover the holes, there are a couple threads showing details.


Overall diameter of 17" and 18" OEM tires are virtually identical, just less sidewall on the 18", no difference in ground clearance. Hybrid ground clearance is 7" compared to 6.3" for the gas version.

I want a completely clean roof with no rack.


Are parts to cover the factory rack expensive?


Anyone purchase a new RAV without the rack and let the dealer remove it?
