Will your renters or car insurance cover?

My guess is probably because two robberies happened at the same time?

So sorry you are having to deal with this. Hopefully you can get it resolved quickly & to your satisfaction. Maybe invest in some Gorilla locking lug nuts as a bit of extra secuirty. It might buy you some time or they may choose to pick on an easier target.

2 minutes work and $200

Op check the local tire shops In The hood, you may find 'em.

"Security", guards, all that is a joke...It stops nothing...May keep an honest guy honest, but other than that, forget it...How much easier could it be than to know when the guard isn't around, or where he is so the thief could avoid him?...

May stop petty crimes of opportunity, but for a "determined" criminal, it's worthless...Same goes for wheel locks, alarms, etc...

My insurance company had a place that would come out and just put facories back on in my driveway! But I finally just got the to write a check ($5600) for the new wheels and tires instead.

Make sure you get them to look at the body work underneath the car also, seperate claim but there is going to be damage from setting on blocks

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.

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.
