Newark... There's your problem right there. Don't try to own anything nice if you have to live in the ghetto. That's one of the first rules you learn when you have to put on your big boy pants (big girl panties) and live on your own.

I don't know your situation or why you ended up in Newark, but as someone who has moved through many different and unfamiliar cities cold, I've found crime maps and simple "What parts of xxxxxx are ghetto" google searches have saved me from ending up someplace ghetto just because I thought it might have been a good deal. Quick search of https://www.crimereports.com/ and yeah... Newark just looks f*cked up in general.

Get the Gorilla locks (20 per set) from the Apex guy Chase. Somewhere around $50-60 (Can't remember, its been awhile). Gives me a little peace of mind. It'll take a little while to get them off and makes the ordinary junkie walk away from them. You'll never deter a pro, but you can slow down 90% of the knuckleheads.

Stock tires are not cheap- cost way more then my Nitto's. I sold my set to a V6'r. They are somewhat in demand. I had no problem selling them.

OP- you will need a more elaborate alarm/detection system living in the hood. Hell, you can be paged on some systems.

Hope it all works out well for you.

I have to believe that the Gorilla Locks will slow them down. I bought them, and hope they help.

Good luck.

Jim

Not bad for 20 minutes work.
You guys are thinking way too high. In a tire shop in the hood they would get about $50 a wheel with the tire. They will sell them double or triple that but that's it.

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
thanks good info

I don't think so. I sold my 4 factory P/Zeros last year with about 5000 miles on them for $500.00.
Tires only- no wheels. They had about 6000 miles on them.

My stock wheels and tires currently live under the house... My Hurst wheels have the gorilla locks with the outside spinner that keeps you from hammering on an undersized socket.

Just to be clear, there are two types of Gorilla wheel locks. The original ones are easily beaten by hammering a smaller socket into it. Those are the ones that also come in 20/pack.

The Gorilla Guard wheel locks have a spinning sleeve, and are much harder to beat. Those only come in 4/pack.

On each wheel, I have 4 Gorilla original locks, and 1 Gorilla Guard lock. Some people go all Guards for the symmetry.

They also have Guard II, but those look like the original ones w/o the spinning sleeves.

Sorry to hear your news :-(

I have one GM and one Gorilla Lock Nut on each wheel. Overkill I know.

I think we could have our Wheels heavily engraved with our phone or post code or something to deter this and stop people buying them as any attempt to remove or fill such would be easily traceable.
I wouldn't mind having such history marking on my wheels, somewhere.

I'll bet it wasn't to a tire that is in the lower income neighborhoods where these were sold.

WOW!!! I would just blow a gasket!!
Not only did the aholes steal your wheels, I bet there is damage to the underside too.
God I would be locked up for murder by now!

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.
What he said!!! Newark is one of the most undesirable areas in NJ. High crime and murder rate. It's up there with Irvington, Camden and Trenton. It's unfortunate that this happened to you and hopefully your ins will take care of it. God knows NJ insurance rates are high as hell. Take advantage and inspect the entire care for other damage. Good luck with resolving this mess.

My friend, I feel for you. I too wish that the world was like a Burt Reynolds movie from the 70s, where the jerks get punched in the mouth and pay for being jerks with loose teeth

No way. I left L.I. (Garden City) years ago. Now live in No West CT.
Never looked back even though we also have our poor areas in this state.
