    My daughter has a brand new Honda Accord sport edition. Beautiful mag wells and wide footprint tires all the way around. While the car was in a friends driveway a few brazen thieves stole all four wheels and let the entire car drop to the ground. The kids were in the yard celebrating a birthday and no one even heard a thing.

    She had a $1,000 deductible on the loss. Bummer!

    The rest of the story...

    It ended costing me $700 to replace the rim, wheel covering, lug nuts and new tire!
    I'm putting locking lugs in just to slow them down next time. gun)

    Go and get some of those locking nuts, or at least the ones that utilize a "keyed" lug nut. They are pretty cheap insurance. I have them on my Taco, and will keep the opportunists at bay.

    That sucks!!! I cought a lil'b@$&@%^ pulling the center cap off my wifes Kia about a month a go. The whole freakin' car woulda been no big deal to me. Hey cops can't find it, insurance pays it off an my credit score goes up. Lord knows it needs it after the ex-wife got done with it. But just the flippin wheels. Open hand slaps rained down on that boy. I don't consider a punk worthy of a punch. Luckily he was of age for a propper trip to the wood shed. I'd still like to meet the low life that broke in my Chevy and made off with my shooting bag. He got a 3 screw Ruger flat top 44 mag and about 300 bucks in ammo. I had been home 15 minutes and was changing for work. I feel for you, i really do. Times, they are a changin'. Not for the better as far as i can tell.

    a few years back my moms beautiful f-350 that we only had for a few weeks was stolen out of our driveway and the three kids that stole it went rollling around in the woods and crashed it into multiple trees and ended up totaling it. the police caught the kids and they ended up getting deported back to where they came from. and this is one of the reasons i moved to montana (from fort myers florida) besides wanting more animals to hunt. i feel your pain.

    This really happened to my hunting buddy.Two guys were in his shed stealing gas out of his tractor.The smart one lit a match to see if the can was about full.Burned down his tool shed and everything in it.They were easy to catch and went to jail but he had a loss that almost ruined him.Of course they had no money or assets for him to get so except for a little insurance he was just out.

    Sorry to hear that. My truck is #4 on the list of thing no one F$%^s with. Kids, wife, guns, truck. I think we'll all keep an eye out for a truck with one nice wheel on it for ya. I lost the first gun I ever owned in the same manner. That was over twenty years ago, and I'm still looking for it.

    YEP!!:D. I here that.
    I remember the time when Id leave my pickup in the truck stop parkinglott, keys in the ignition, rifles and a nice rope or two in the rifle racks, and windows down. leave for a couple days movin cows up on the premits, and come back to find nothing had changed, unless a buddy used thier finger to write a howdy note in the dust on the dash board.
    Now I live further into a "populated area", and even lock the doors to the house when I leave. But man, to have that happen, in your own driveway........ wow. Time to either move away, or start leavin bodys in your wake.:rolleyes:
    Hope you find your wheel and tire.
