The tilt sensor is designed for detecting enough elevation for towing the vehicle. I'm not sure that it would be triggered by raising the car enough to pop the wheels.

re: aftermarket electronic installs. I took my wife's 07 sportage to MASS electronics to get the remote starter installed. Only place that Kia Canada has authorized for the installation (well as of a couple years ago anyway). I was really really impressed with the install. The tech gave me the show & tell before he put all the panel back.

I deal with Sam Guadagnolo, the service manager. He knew his sh!t as well. I don't know if he is still there or not.

They are at:
40 East Pearce Street
Richmond Hill ON L4B1B7
USA-Spec iPod Interface Comparison
DIY: H11 Foglight to HID Conversion

but in the end, if the thief wants the wheels, he'll end up getting them. not much you can do except for shock sensors built into the fenders so when someone touches the fender, your alarm will go off.
How about proximity sensors? Right by the rear windows? They could be installed inside.
