really, if they want the wheels, they will get the wheels. Wheel locks only slow them down, but do not deter.

This man speaks the truth. My neighbour woke up to see his car literally sitting on milk crates.

If they are that valuable, have them insured.

rotweiler Ivan's method would also work nicely but you run the risk of leaving brain matter all over your shiney paint With my RS's I have 3 diff sets of lock nuts all 3 sets from different brands. Keeping my fingers crossed!
