I fully agree that all it does is slow the scumbags down a bit. Kinda like a fence around someone's front yard, just keeps honest people honest.You can buy that anywhere Discount tire sells them it's just a little socket it's not really a lock but I did put the locks on my. Anything you can do to slow them down but if they want them they will get them I just have my insurance value my net 8000 high-value accessories so up to 8000 I get coverage. So if my wheels are stole they get replaced plus the tow to the tire place. People don't realize if they steal them you have to have your vehicles towed to a tire store
This. My wheel and tire is 117 lbs with those cheap spline locks that I bought for one reason, they look cool. I just hope their stupid friend takes a video and posts it like these kids do these days because I want a good laugh.If someone can carry the tire and wheel they can have it. We used a forklift to place mine on the back.
Totally agree.I just got the Gorilla 24 piece set of splined lugs. Small price to pay for peace of mind. Doing them all versus just one per wheel requires more time than most potential thieves would like to invest.
Catalytic converter thief is probably way more common, here in Chicago anyway. The JL or any high lifted vehicle is a easy target. I have a 2.0T now and thankfully the CAT is not easily accessible on the turbo.I haven’t had anyone steel my wheels but I did loose the catalytic converter to thieves on my JK Rubicon. Not much you can do there as it’s so easy to get to.
Has anyone had their wheels stolen off their jeep lately? I'm debating getting wheel locks, but I'm not even sure people steal wheels and tires off parked Jeeps anymore.
The back-up camera cover blocks the lug nut under it. You will need a #T40 Torx bit to get the cover off in order to remove the spare tire. (Your tool kit has this bit.)
