NEW Wheels-Best way to protect from theft
Hello - I just purchased some new Summer Wheels and I'm looking for the best way that folks use to protect them. I know nothing if full proof especially if someone is determined to take your wheels. I figure of course I'll get lock nuts. What is the best kind out there? BMW or aftermarket. Should I get multiple per tire? If aftermarket, which brands. Should I consider a BMW factory alarm? Will if go off if the car is slighly raised. Just looking for any feedback on what others have done.

Thanks all

Bump - I am in the same boat re: being worried about new wheels. Does anyone have advice? Thanks also!

Video camera, touch sensitive alarm, automatic motion sensing lights.

Contact poison? 10 gauge shotgun with 00 buckshot?

Put a Police sticker on the window. LOL

Whatever you do don't blow 2k on wheels and tires and then buy the cheapest 70$ alarm you can find. Don't get a fake little flashing light doo dad, they will test the car to see if it's real. Get a motion sensing or touch sensitive car alarm with distant notification keychain.

Any recommended alarms out there? I have an E90. Factory alarm vs. aftermarket?
