Sucks to happen but goto expect something to happen when it left out in plain site. No respect for others property. Time to move.

One of the first thing I did when I got my Camaro back in '09 was to order a set of Gorilla locks.
Put all 20 on. I bet if you had done that your wheels would still be on your car.
Sorry for your misfortune.

I would sure get some wheel locks. They are not 100 %,but they will stop someone without the proper tools that's in a hurry.

I purchased my Camaro just north of Chicago and the car came with locking lug nuts. The dealership said they had an issue with rims being stolen, so now all of their lot cars come with them.

Sorry to hear about this, but definitely get yourself some locking lug nuts in the future.

My guess is probably because two robberies happened at the same time?

So sorry you are having to deal with this. Hopefully you can get it resolved quickly & to your satisfaction. Maybe invest in some Gorilla locking lug nuts as a bit of extra secuirty. It might buy you some time or they may choose to pick on an easier target.

2 minutes work and $200

Op check the local tire shops In The hood, you may find 'em.

"Security", guards, all that is a joke...It stops nothing...May keep an honest guy honest, but other than that, forget it...How much easier could it be than to know when the guard isn't around, or where he is so the thief could avoid him?...

May stop petty crimes of opportunity, but for a "determined" criminal, it's worthless...Same goes for wheel locks, alarms, etc...

My insurance company had a place that would come out and just put facories back on in my driveway! But I finally just got the to write a check ($5600) for the new wheels and tires instead.

Make sure you get them to look at the body work underneath the car also, seperate claim but there is going to be damage from setting on blocks

don't work. you just hammer a slightly smaller socket onto the nut and then remove. shops do it all the time when the owner has either lost the key or forgot to leave it. the people who stole your wheels look like they know what they're doing and wouldn't have been stopped by locking wheel nuts.

Gorilla Guard wheel locks w/the spinning sleeves. And if you're really worried, get multiple sets. Would take at least 2 hours to get off. What thief would sit there drilling for two hours?

damn bro, that really sucks. I know here in Jersey City, honda accord sport rims are getting robbed as well as infiniti G37 rims. Becoming more of a problem than before but first time hearing about a Camaro ever. If you need any help just let me know!
