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

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.

Performance one step at a time.
