WHEEL THEFT PREVENTION TIPS | My Factory 20’s were STOLEN!

Not long ago, the factory 20″ wheels on my 2014 GMC Sierra were stolen off of my truck in front of my house. The thieves set the truck back down on the street resting on the rear brake rotors and front ball joints.
Fortunately, my insurance covered the entire loss. I replaced the factory 20″ wheels with a set of 22″ wheels from the GM Performance catalog. These are basically the 22″ Denali wheels. But instead of chrome inserts, they have black painted inserts.
In this video I show a few of the steps I am taking to prevent theft of my wheels in the future. I purchased a set of Gorilla Guard wheel locks. Then I also show you my little trick of stamping the wheels with some kind of identifying mark. This could help to recover the rims in case they do get stolen in the future.

One thing you forgot to mention is if you can put your car in a garage or behind a fence. Out of sight out of mind.

My friend fixed my truck but when I got the truck back the truck looked closer to the ground. Do people steal wheels replace with their wheels and put the same tires on. I overheard this so called friend say to someone, after looking at my tires, “Those suckers are coming off.” These were GMC tires.

Rusty Shackleford says:

AND BTW, IT’S BEEN COMMON KNOWLEDGE SINCE THE 90S THAT ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS GET A SIMILAR WHEEL LOCK KIT THEN HAMMER THAT NON-MATCHING KEY ON… THIS WORKS ON ANY LOCK AND IS WORTH A $5-$15k SET OF RIMS.
