GM didn't take the car from him because of this, it was due to be turned back into GM around this time.

News report on Channel 4 in Detroit just had a story about a bunch of wheel/tire thefts in the Metro area...One apartment complex had 6 hit, Livonia had 40, etc.

They also mentioned that they caught a person in van with a bunch of stolen wheels...maybe #3's?

Most of the ones the showed or described were at least upp on bricks!

Number3 you didn't do anything wrong, and for anyone one on this forum to say otherwise is wrong. I feel bad that this had to happen to you and taint your experience with Number 3 after an enjoyable 6 months. It seems your experience was part of recent rash of thefts and not specific to the Camaro or your neighborhood. Also, sorry to hear about your wife...times are indeed tough and a lot of great people have been lost :-(

happened even in my lil sister's apartment complex in the Taylor area just a day or two ago. A couple Cadillacs and a couple other decent cars found sitting on cinder blocks.

And for $50 someone can buy all 5 "keys" and steal your rims. NEVER buy "factory" wheel locks.

They ship lots of parts and cars down south.

He's implying a Mexican crime gang ripped them off I think. It's just a joke.

Hoss...you may want to purchase lock nuts for all 4 wheels...a fellow Vette owner of mine in the adjacent neighborhood had his wheels/tires easily removed (car was parked in the driveway overnight). He now has 4 locking nuts on each wheel...anything to make it harder for the scummy thugs is a good thing!

sorry to hear that man i would have never thought someone would steal the 18's, i hate theives but expect damage especially after the flat bed has to drag the car up the bed. To me that sounds like fingernails to a chalkboard, hopefully insurance covers everything and you should be fine

It's probably some meth heads and I bet the wheels are sitting in a pawn shop or tire shop on the other side of town.

Mexican's would not of left the lugnuts.

(That's a complement not an insult).
