Just fair warning...I just bought a 2013 Sportage LX and was told by the service center that they cannot install the side roof rails after the fact because it would void the side curtain wall airbags warranty. The rails are installed sequencially with the airbags in the factory apparently. So anyone wanting these rails, get the "Convenience" package.

Yup I heard the same from my local Kia dealer here in Canada. Grew also mentioned losing the water leakage warranty. I work as an engineer in an auto assembly plant and don't see a reason for this. Likely Kia doesn't trust their dealers to retrofit it.
Anyhow, I just bought a Rhino Rack and waiting for it to arrive.

Can you share which Rhino rack you ordered? (Links and such are ok)
