Default Roof weight limit

So I'm trying to design a rack for the roof that will house 4 kc daylighters and possibly a spare tire. My question is, what is the maximum safe amount of weight I can put on the roof and where should the mounting points be located?

Thanks in advance.
Mark

I see most stock roof rack vehicles the rating is 200 lbs, I'd start there to be safe.
