Window wind deflectors?

Does anyone have any complaints about the sun/rain/wind guards that go around the side windows? I have heard complaints about them being very noisy over 55 MPH and I really don't want to add yet more noise. My dad has them on his Chevy and complains about the noise, I just got them for Christmas and once it stops raining I want to put them on but wanted to know what other users thought.

I got the AVS in-channel ones, any complaints about those ones?

You have nothing to worry about...at highway speeds the windshield noise will more than take care of any noise from widow vent visors.

edit: seriously, the only noise I've heard at around 70mph with a cross wind wasn't from the window vent visor's...it was from the windshield. There's a tsb for it but for the few times I've heard the noise I wouldn't bother getting it fixed. I have the AVS in-channel visors and never noticed any noise from them.

I'd get the in channels all of the adhesive exterior style that I've had on all of my vehicles have had trouble sticking on the edges which causes them to flutter and tap on the side which bothers other people who ride in the truck, when you want to take them off or replace them the adhesive is a bitch to get off.

Yea, I had stick on ones in a previous vehicle and the adhesive eventually started to come off and they got pretty loose. I've actually had to take the in channel ones out once or twice for something and once I put them back in they still fit nice and snug and dont rattle around at all. I'll never get stick on ones again.

I had the one's that tape to the outside and hated the look. Luckly the tape came off one of the visors within a couple weeks after purchase and I was able to take them back and exchange for in-channel.
