Serial numbers on factory rims?

A few hours ago all 4 of my rims and tires were stolen out of my camaro. They are the stock rims with the pirelli p-zero. Do the stock rims and tires have serial numbers on them so they can be identified? I doubt they'll be found but I just wanted to know.

Theres no ID on the wheels. When I took a trip to Fl 4 years ago with my new Camaro
I was told to get locks for SS wheels. Apparently Florida is a hot bed for stolen Camaro wheels.
I've had the Gorilla #71644's on since.

I too have them, they look great and wook well. Actually I got a complete set so all teh lugs match, so on each wheel there are 4 new gorilla regular lugs, adn 1 gorilla lock lug.

we have site vendors ( APEX CHASE ) that can and will take care of you and have good prices too, shoot him a PM.

I always put 2 lock sets on my wheels. Its easy to steal wheels with only 1 locking lug

Sucks to hear man. Locking Lugs are always a great idea however they only do so much. If someone wanted you're wheels they probably have a key for em. That being said I have Gorilla locks on mine and it definitely helps me sleep a little more soundly at night.

It's so easy to get locking lugs off. You can even buy a really good tool designed for that purpose for around 100 bucks. Or any cheap 12 point socket the right size will work too.
