Yes, but it's terrible he cannot park his car outside his own house and not have to worry about a bunch of assholes taking his rims. I hope the car is OK.

I was just reading a post on NAGTROC about a GT-R getting it's rims stolen too. Seems it's happening more and more.

Hope they find them. Good luck!

Maybe a fork truck or pallet jack could be used to lift the car without further damage...

Would have not matter if your car was locked or not. They would have still gotten the rims, and the factory alarm is not shock activated. At least I do not think GM cars are....

Anywho, whoever took them did it for the rubber. Not the rims. The camaro comes with perralli's ? Even if not, they come with a decent enough tire that someone would take, re-sell cheap, and make a buck. Its the new "make a buck deal" A use tire shop will buy them no questions ask. As for your rims, they will sell em to. Someone looking for a Spare, or drag radials rims will get em in a heartbeat.

Always buy wheel locks with nice rims or tires. On my stang I have hub locks and wheel locks. The wheel locks also have a very unique key, that not any universal lock will fit.

If your feeling really good, use 2 wheel locks on one wheel.

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.
