I had a look at both racks.

Yakima felt fairly sturdy but also fairly bulky compared to thule.
I was told thule rack locks are easy to break through with flat head screw driver.

Still sitting between the two.... I guess I have to commit and go for one

They work for various wheel sizes as the front of the rack has a sliding piece.

Can't thank you enough! The experience wtih Hagen's of Blaine was terrific,overall I saved over $100. The icing on the cake was when the agent at the border just let me through with a verbal declaration of the bike rack, I didn't have to pay tax.
