I know you live in Michigan, and right now the economy is extra bad there, but by the background of your picture you live in a nice neighborhood. I personally have a 2 car garage the is alarmed with central monitoring and I have Infrared hidden camera's also. I set it off once and the cops were here before I could get in the house to hut it off and tell central monitoring not to send them...less than 3 minutes. Alarm you car, garage, and house. Better safe than sorry! I also like the alarm that rings in your pocket....NICE!!! Silent, so you can sneak up and beat the hell out of the crook!


I understand being cautious, But damn.......one night and bamm, the neighbors are all suspect....their kids or kids friends.


This was probably done for the tires more so than the rims....sorry for your trouble...now let's pray no damage has been done!! :(

Hum I should post a pic of my alarm in a garbage bag box.

I built a portable 2 way unit that can be moved to any car. You just plug it into the cig lighter lol. I installed it inside an empty glad garbage bag box.

I agree wheel locks could stop many thieves...but how hard is it to put a tire iron on the lock and jump on it to just break the lock and stud? 2 seconds-Not very hard...it still may deter many though.

Interesting idea Vash. Perhaps this little surprise in a box would also keep away the thieves?

One of the ideas was that when they looked into the car and saw the garbage box. They would be too stupid to know it was an advanced 2 way alarm system or something worth breaking the window for.

With the onstar recovery system it's pretty much smash and grab tactics.

That's it, I'm moving to New York. In my area, unless someone has been shot, the soonest you'll see the police is in a few hours, more likely days.

One note on the OnStar recovery system. My friend has a Cadillac Escalade. He had it stolen the night he got married (what freaking scum bags some people are). He called OnStar and by that time the thieves had already managed to disable it. So don't rely on OnStar to find your car.

This particular IOM LT is one of my favorite cars too. Well now this car is getting some adventure on the road and developing a personality.

I hate delivering bad news but McGard wheel locks WILL NOT deter a thief from taking the wheels, and how do I know this you ask ???? the wheels (2) of my Infiniti G35 where taken with McGard wheel locks installed, I found my a wheel lock on the ground with no damage on it just as it would be removed by me, did a little research and I found out that Infiniti/Nissan only uses 5, yes I said five patterns of locks only !!

DO NOT BUY ANY WHEEL LOCKS FROM THE CAR DEALERS AS THEY ARE LIMITED IN THEIR PATTERNS,
this is to facilitate service mechanics in the event they need to remove a wheel and owner has accidentally lost/forgot or has no clue what the service rep is talking about

Any wheel lock can be removed by banging an oversized socket onto the wheel and then braking it loose with a ratchet wrench

suggestion for a solution...buy a wheel lock from an auto parts store, at least the patterns vary, I did this but I switched to Gorilla Locks

As an added note, same night 1/2 mile down the road another Infiniti also had 2 wheels removed, the pattern was the same as mine !!!!

Agree that's why your security needs to be multi layered. If your alarm is configured properly tampering with the wheels will set it off.

However without the pager it's somewhat useless, as we all know people ignore alarms and like you said they work fast. So they won't stop unless someone screams out a window or door etc.

WHen they catch the guys who did this, ask the cops for five minutes alone with them and a baseball bat.



OR maybe you could dish out little bit of this :

Or a little of this:

I hate to see this happen to anyone. These have worked for us for many years. No UPS, FedEx or mail deliveries (got a P.O. box), we even have to be at home and lock them in the garage for the water and power meter readers.
