Oh God no, it is the actual rubber tires that I'm more worried about, I know a crook could care less about those ugly 16 year old rims , it'* the tires that someone would want

BTW, my neighbor drives a G6 and thats the car whose stock wheels got jacked, also a days ago, I found out this girl I know at my university G6 stock chrome wheels was stolen (with wheel locks)

I am SOOOOO glad that I don't really need to worry about this at my house, I can leave my ipod on the seat with the windows down, doors unlocked, key in ignition and not worry about thieves. The biggest disturbance in my neighboorhood is my neighboor and I spinning tires out of our driveways or some friends comming over with mud trucks with LOUD exhaust, playing in my mudpit.

I am sorry, but I could NEVER live in a city of any kind, I love my 7 1/2 acres that I can do anything LEGAL that I want.

don't want to create another thread for this question...

whats so wrong with putting more than one wheel lock on the wheel? I would think it would be ok to replace all your lug nuts with different varieties of wheel locks. That way you car has several different designs so crooks can't easly steel you wheels.

If you want to spend that money, go for it. It won't even slow down the idiot that really wants them.

There are plenty of devices out there to defeat any wheel lock. The guy that really wants them will get them.

The idiot that can't figure it out will vandalize your car, costing you more in the long run.

Just do one per wheel, and let the pro'* have your wheels.

Putting more than 1 wheel lock on is redundant really. What happens if your car gets towed into a mechanics shop for something, your gonna have 1 pissed off mechanic and 20 broken wheel locks. IMO
