    Keeping your wheels safe...

    I got a 02 Escalade and i have been thinking of getting 22's or 20's but i live in the city of Richmond and i park it next to the garage...I just have the factory security system and i dont think that guards the wheels..DO all of you guys have aftermarket security systems...What else can i do besides an aftermarket securtity system to protect my wheels from being stolen?

    whoever puts your rims on should put locks on them too ... and ask him to put two of them that way not only do you need one perfect lock but two

    Since perhaps I am getting aftermarket wheels for my truck as my own Christmas present, would you please be kind enough to tell me where you got the Gorilla locks?

    Thanks in advance,

    mine came with my new wheels and tires from 4 Wheel Parts. search google for gorilla lug locks and you should be able to find a place to order from.

    Do gorilla locks all use the same keys. Because thieves could just buy the locks and use the keys to steal rims. I still don't get how they steal rims. Do they jack your truck up and take them. That would be really noticeable with peeps watching. If it is a deserted place keep a camera on them.

    "The Gorilla locks unique external pattern allows for unlimited key and lock combinations providing unparalled security." my Gorillas have different grooves than the one in the picture i posted.
