Default Wheels and tires Stolen from my car!

This happened at like 2am Saturday morning. I woke up about 10 and went outside only to notice that my stock SS wheels are tires were gone and the car is sitting on cinder blocks! I am just outraged about this. I called my Insurance company and that said since it is the weekend, they cant process my claim till tuesday. So my car will be sitting on blocks for at least a week! Has anyone else had to deal with something like this before?

Who the **** would steal stock SS rims?????? They are like original one of a kind rims. I would drive around and look at every W Body car and see if I can find them. I'm sorry it happened to you.

I worked at a dealership and this happened a few. There was also a group of people that stole roughly 30 full size truck spares and cut the cats off of every vehicle they could get under.

They were on Craigslist but not for very long. I called the cops but we all know that they won't do anything

Really? Tow stickers? How the held would they tow it? My complex told me they wouldn't tow mine but its in a car port. I'm still waiting on insurance to handle this.

$4200 ish to replace. It happened to a friend of mine. I've seen about a dozen LS4s in the area get jacked for their wheels. Atleast the put yours on blocks, one guy had two skids jammed under his car and it teetered onto the front bumper.

truck rims were stolen so they can sell them to companys for cheap that need new tires for their trucks. cats were stolen because they have platinum in them and you can sell them to a metal/scrap place for money.

Sorry for your loss. The suggestion about locking lug nuts is a good 1,it won't stop a thief they have a mallot and a socket but it will incumber them enough so that they'll have to make some hellatious noise to achieve their goal and hopefully lead to catching some hot lead. Theives should have their hands severed from their appendages............
