Default Wheels Stolen. Keep eye out for black Kiwami's in Houston

Keep an eye out for some black 18x9.5+38 Work Emotion Kiwami wheels around Houston. They were stolen from my STI last night. They have the stock Dunlop 245/40/18's on them.

Wheel locks pretty much discourage only kiddies who don't know better.

Locks are pretty easy to get off to someone who wants your wheels.

TLDR: Just get some locks cheap as you can but don't lose sleep over it. Insurance will get you some new wheels. It's the world we live in.
Better yet get a garage.

How To Remove Wheel Locks Without a Key - EricTheCarGuy - YouTube
All someone needs is a jack, battery operated impact, Bolt extractor like this: http://www.irwin.com/uploads/product...actors-802.jpg and about 1.5-2mins.
After that they are gone

If they can avoid it they won't use a jack. Just pull the valve stems and lower the car on blocks.

Sorry to hear about that. What's up with car related thefts in Houston right now? I've read about a string of 3 S2000s being stolen in the past few weeks from there.

I think it's about time we all invest in Trunk Monkeys.

Heard that some car thieves now have a way of copying the code from your car remote when you lock your car and can get right in. I have been locking my car with the lock button on the door from inside when I'm out and about.

Code grabbing has been around since the first keyless entry. Not anything new.

Work wheels come with bolt-in valve stems, but the could just as easily take out the schrader valve

Indeed, ANY signal can be taken and replicated.

Sorry that happened dude, definitely sucks. I know, I had 2 Integras(fully loaded) jacked back in 08'-09'. Stripped down to the bone, which both had high dollar alarms. Which did nothing.
That happening is what actually pushed me towards the subie world!

But best of luck to you catching the ass with your rims driving around or something

And I make sure my S2K is either garaged at home or in a gated parking lot at work.
