Some jerk stole my valve stem caps

Some jerk stole my ti's OEM metal valve stem caps. I went out to wash the car, and noticed that all 4 had been stolen. You can still see the smudging left on the rim around the valve because of all the brake dust- caused when the asshole was removing the caps. Just to think that it probably is going onto some ricer's car who couldn't spend the $10 to get his own damn set. Well, at least he didn't get the rims.

My OZ valve stem caps were stolen about a month ago and had to reorder them. Cost me $40US+sipping for 2 sets.

I caught a kid one time ...

Just so happens I looked out the window and saw this kid standing beside my car eating chips ... I was like WTF ... I kept watching him, then I realize he's up to something when he started looking around to see if there was anyone around.

I was in my room with the blinds closed but I could see him and he couldn't see me, he looked up straight at me about 3 times, then looked around, put the chips in his pocket, and then he went for it.

I ran out, caught him taking off the FL valve stem cover and I asked him, "Can I help you?", he started mumbling with the valve stem cover in his hands. "hmmmm, I just wanted to replace the ones on my bike.", I could tell the kid was scared, he couldn't have been more that 12 yrs old.

I just took the one he had in his hands and told him that if I ever see his face ever again, that I would call the cops. I haven't seen him since, I usually see this kid riding around on my street.

These kids are starting early, next thing you know they'd be stealing rims and shtuff.

I sorta had my valve stems stolen by Wheels Direct when i got my tires put on a week or two ago. When i got my car back, i noticed they had put brand new chromed stems on instead of the crummy ones i had before! i guess it's a free gift =)

but seriously
my friend's bimmer has had it's clears stolen, fog lights, and kidney grills all in one night! And the doors were still locked, as well as the hood was closed!!

i have no idea how they did it

Man If I caught someone in the act of stealing anything off my car I'd probably smoke em right there.



yah literally

And I consider myself one of the most chilled out people on the planet.

Just takes alot of work to buy, insure, maintain, and take care of a car not to mention the endless labor of loe you put into customizing it just to have some dope come and steal the stuff.

I usually have my car in a garage but that black Bimmer that was posted here was stolen from in a garage wasn't it?

I would have no regrets taken out anybody who would even think of breaking into my home or garage.

And I don't even like seeing animals get hurt.

Hey!! Not so loud dude! I don't want everybody on max to know

Honestly I've become an "expert" on removing and installing foglights after I had a nice experience with a faulty bulb

Hmm that reminds me I still owe ya for them fuses saj!!

The best way to prevent the valve cap loss thing... tighten them... use some pliers and tighten them so you cannot remove them with your fingers!

Or

Or buy some of those 8 ball caps from Kragen auto parts.

One of my pals got em for his dodge truck. We couldn't get em off.

Had to spray em with WD40 and plier em off after cruching the plastic 8 ball off.
