No you wouldn't, we'd all chip in and hire an OJ caliber team of defense lawyers, "If the glove does not fit, you must acquit."

Then they'll just wait til you're not at home and rob you blind and sell all your guns on the black market. Keep that shit a secret so when they try and surprise you, you surprise them right back, and they don't rob anyone ever again.

Sorry that this post even exists. That is so terrible. I really don't miss Jersey, but then again I lived in central Jersey. I thought people stopped stealing rims in the 90s??

The one positive to locking lugs I guess. Hopefully karma catches up with these guys REAL QUICK.

This. I was going to say the same thing. I don't advertise about my guns to anyone.

Gorilla Locks... You can get a set of twenty for like 50 bucks. I think I got mine from Phastek Performance.

20 ought to slow them down a bit

Doing this 20 times would bring alot of attention...

Yeah these don't work well at all. I used to work at pep boys and we sold these, always had people coming in telling us someone got them off.

I just want to annoy the person stealing them. I figure if you are going to steal my rims you should have frustration too...

Guess you missed the part about the Chuck, takes care of it when I am at home. Had a 20 year veteran of the Birmingham police department tell me in his career he had never seen a house broken into that had a dog. Why? Much easier to go next door where there isn't a dog.

It's from another post, but trunk monkey, we need those. Because sometimes getting your car back, just isn't enough.

I'm buying my next car from the dealer that offers those

Shit man thats horrible!!! I hope karma kicks those punks in the A$$ and they get caught!

I dont know if you have a paypal but i would be more then happy to donate a little money to you so you can put it towards some new wheels. Maybe others would do the same and together we can help ease the cost a bit

If you do PM me

That really sucks. I'd get 4 different wheel locks, 1 for each wheel. It may not stop it from happening again but sure will make it a lot harder.

If you REALLY wanted to go nuts (no pun intended), get a different lock for each lug nut.

They don't work though. I've known tons of guys who've ha the wheels stolen who had them. When they first became available they were good. But now they just aren't effective unfortunately.
