Default Rims getting jacked in Brooklyn

We're seeing an uptick of wheel thefts in Brooklyn, specifically around Clarendon to Farragut, E25th to the E50s. Haven't hit a subie yet, off the top of my head, within the past week they've hit an audi, a maxima, a murano, and an accord. Be mindful though, I frequently see +11 wrx/sti's in the area.

Funny you mentioned the accord, since those were the exact rims that were stolen. Poor guy had just bought wheel locks that he was going to install that same night before they got stolen.

Wow that sucks. Judging by those pictures it seems like a decent area and worst of all hundreds of apartments all around, obviously these guys have no fear.

Thieves are hungry in the Honda/Acrua game. They jacked my 2000 Civic Si back in 2006.

Lowlifes.

Drive home, set your ride up on bricks and roll those wheels to the house. Wake up, put those back on and drive to work.

Consider it your work out each day. Repeat the same thing when you go on vacation.

Dats what I is do. Problem solve.
