Stolen wheels

So someone stole my TSW wheels last night. I called the police, progressive and got all the paper work together. Anything else y'all can think of that I should do…? I'm thinking of ordering vossen CV3 but its going to be a week or so… They f****d up my fenders, bumper, hood, and side skirt.

So sorry to hear that. Did you have wheel locks? I hope your insurance company will do the right thing. Good luck.

Sucks to see that happen, but if you have a garage, why not use it? A car with aftermarket wheels is begging to have the wheels stolen at some point or another.

My cousins live in the Woodlands...isn't that an upscale area? Why would someone steal TSW wheels... No offense, but they aren't the most expensive wheel out there.

Did you **** someone off?

Thanks. Discount tire gave me some lugs that have a key. I took a look at the lugs and my oem tire iron fit over them... that really pissed me off!!!

According to the officer its a common problem. Something happened to my friend over the summer. I guess they thought they were high end wheels? Cant think of anyone I made that mad?

Now that I think about it...it's probably someone that doesn't live in the area. Just picks a nice area and rips the cars off.

One of my vehicles has an alarm with tilt sensors added. If alarm is is set and car is tilted, like jacking, mercury switch sets off alarm. I have multiple wheel locks of different designs as well. May help, may not. Sorry to hear.

What do I do about the TPMS Sensors? Do I just buy them and install or do they need to be programed? For the wheel locks what are some good ones that won't brake the bank? And where can I get black lug nuts?
