What prevents center caps of wheels from getting jacked?

If I was to buy a bad[IMG]i/expressions/moon.gif[/IMG] wheel and it happened to come with the center cap, cant people just pop it off with a screw driver? or is there something that locks it in or an aftermarket lockt that'll keep it? Oh, are wheel locks that effective? I mean what if somebody just gets the pattern of your lug and takes it on from there? Basically what I'm asking is, with new wheels, what aftermarkets for the wheel would you get? Thanx

There is nothing you can do about the center cap. Just like how someone took the Tantrum tag from my rims. About the wheel locks, if someone really wants your rims, they will get it. It's still better than nothing though. The pattern is pretty random for each set.

I had some tsw hock-r's on a previous car and I always worried about someong steeling the fake indy style rings(I don't have a clue as to what they are called) off my rims. Anyhow, if they want them, they will get them.
