Locking lugs are on and work fine with my black lug covers. A little shorter than the original lugs so the cap doesn't stick out as far as the other four but it'* not a huge deal. Bring it on thugs! I probably just jinxed myself. They'll probably just steal the whole car now if they can't get the wheels off.

ahem, how do you steal rims off a vehicle in a person'* driveway without stealling the car? Just a heads up, there'* no harm done doing what you did and it was a smart choice. But if they pulled something like that off then they may do things like that for a living and the dealer I work at has a set of over 50 keys for wheel locks. If they do things like that alot they may have a set too.

I know there is not much else you can do, I'm just saying be aware that if someone wants to steal those rims bad enough they will be gone one morning.

Yes, I realize this. For $20 however, maybe it will deter them to move on.

The Ram truck wheels I mentioned in my first post were stolen in his driveway and the truck was left up on blocks. I know what you mean--I don't see how they could have done it either with him home but they sure did.

Yeah I'm not trying to preach to the chior, but I felt like preaching to the chior and thinking out loud at the same time.
