theft-- it sucks.

my konig toxxins will be coming in on friday. I ordered wheel locks, but will this be enough? I know that nothing can stop theft, only deter. Are wheel locks enough to deter? I thought about an alarm system, but what does everyone do when they hear an alarm? "Jesus Chirst, someone shut that thing off!!" I live in a low crime area, but I drive to philly everyday for work, and to the bars and clubs on weekends. What is the best way? Sorry for the simple questions, I'm new at this game.

sometimes if you're too worried about theft, just don't bother buying it then[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif[/IMG]
aftermarket wheel locks are a good idea, not the one's from the dealer but the one's that are shaped different from regular nuts

Most people will have 1 set of lock nuts on their rims. I use 2 different sets. The set that I had from before and the set that I bought with my rims.

If anything it at least gives me peace of mind
