so 3am in the morning, my sister was up and heard a metal crashing. in front of the drive way. my mother investigated and found out my car was jacked in the air w/ wheels missing.

Whoever did it was pretty smart. used gloves and took both wheels and lugnuts. definitely knew what they were taking. took the joy out my weekend.

i have to find some funds to get to auto-x this sat.

bastards.




btw... that fact that someone deprive you of in instant makes you feel completely helpless. the law is not there to protect you enough (i'm not bashing cops).

any specifics to the wheels? besides being rpf1's? tires on them before they were stolen?

since honda's can also use the same lug pattern they may float up on a board for sale. give us the details on them in case we see something similar for sale around your area.

theives suck and all should get their achilles tendants chopped for stealing our car parts (sorry i just really hate when stuff like this happens)

sorry for your loss

First of all many people will tell you: "if someone wants to get your wheels he will, no matter what".
That's true but on the other hand if $20 would make his work more difficult I wouldn't mind spending them for wheels locks...

Here is what I found about the Gorilla wheel locks - which are the only one that work IMHO (no I'm not a dealer :mrgreen: ).
Original post

and here is the info...
I'm looking for wheel locks and after some extensive research I found that gorilla has the very best!
It's almost impossible to remove the wheels w/o the key, because the have a Free-spinning sleeve with super narrow groove!


So I want to see what's the miata size for the wheels locks
They have




Anyway I know that I'm not really helping you and I'm sorry for your loss the above serve as an idea for the future...

it has my initials "jp"in yellow in side the wheel. one wheel is ring scratched because of a bad ss brakeline install.

Seriously, I'd vote for a law similar to that.
