Why not get onto Gumtree & use the correct Rola ones ?

You can CUT them down if off a wider car...
Only need to shorten one end
Easy as !

By removing the rubber center strip there's mounting screws,
a hacksaw & 2 minutes & if too long they'll FIT !

Other more knowledgeable guys here may be able to say if correct width or not

Actually I'll measure them tomorrow to tell everyone how long to make them

Think I still have few truck accessories in my garage that I can turn something useful for my car.
