Modes of Wheel Theft

I'm in the market for wheels....and my town is straight-gutter.

I'm trying to think of all the ways that one might steal rims, in hopes of out-smarting them.


So far I have:


-The oversize socket method-> Gorilla Guard's seem to have that covered.....will a gator-grip socket take these off?





-Removing the non-keyed lugs from each wheel, jacking the car up and dropping it..shearing off the wheel stud on which the lock resides-> install locks on 2-5 studs for each wheel




-Stealing the whole dam car--> I park in a very narrow row of cars, and there is someone entering or leaving the lot most all times of the day....so a tow-truck would not go unnoticed....one of our residents happens to be a cop that pops into the lot randomly and frequently throughout the night





Anybody got any other ideas or suggestions for theft prevention or deterrence?


Am I leaving something out?

How about a car alarm with a 2 way remote, letting you know when the alarm is tripped... And a louisvilee slugger, to chase the bad guys away.

Set up a CCTV camera pointed directly at your car. Can get pricey but it's worth it if you buy expensive wheels.

An alternative would be to buy a bunch of used/broken/cheap cameras and mount them all around the lot, and mock up some signs that say "Monitored by CCTV 24/7," or something to that effect. Lol I don't know, just trying to think outside the box.

The 2-way pagers are also nice alarms, but experienced thieves know how to bypass the pager/alarm. Happened to a friend of mine who had a Viper 2-way on his Integra.
