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.

Oh my God that's awful :( I hope they catch them for you. Will insurance cover the losses?

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!

on your profile it says you're in Alpine, NJ. I live in Bergen County also and I can tell you that the difference between Newark and Alpine is night and day (to say the least).

sorry to hear about your wheels. I'll bet my next pay check that the security guards are probably in with the retards that stole your rims.

take it from me, you'll never see those wheels again, even if you search the local body shops. Newark is a war zone, I'm a NJ State Trooper and I work in Newark.

my best advice to you is MOVE OUT OF NEWARK ASAP.

I disagree I like the stock wheels. The only thing bad about them is they are on most Camaros..

Sorry to see this

Same thing happened to me, car was about 3-4 weeks old and to top it off I let the apt complex know and they tell me I have 3 days or they are towing it! Needless to say it got ugly and im not going to share what words were said, I ended up moving into a house with a garage a few weeks after..



Only thing I can tell you is to try and make the best out of it.. talked to the insur guy that came out that happened to be a car guy also and was just as pissed as I was, talked to him into cutting me a check and got me a set of forgeline rims

Id also invest in some gorilla locks from Apex

They are probably not considered high-end wheels that will be fenced...

They will be sold for scrap, so the hypes can make a few quick bucks...
