Here's the pic of the missing wheels that I took last night trying to help Sam out with the jacks.


The pic below shows the fingerprints of the thieves. I hope these bastards get caught and arrested.

Spoon22, I PM'ed you info about a for sale ad on craigslist, and there is a listing for the same brand/style wheels in the orange county listing. Not sure if coincidence, but figured you should do a follow up. I'm not sure if I can post the link on here, but I'm sure you all can do a search as well. Hope we can catch these low lifes!

Wow you're never safe anywhere. One of the reasons I'm happy with my cheap XXR wheels. Nobody wants them. Actually my previous non-turbo Z was stolen with same wheels but recovered next day in compton. All they took was cheap $50 clarion HU.

I posted in an earlier post that I DID have key locks!! They broke them probably. You could just go into a store and buy one from what my buddy who works at an auto body tells me.

I hand torque the lugs to factory spec, maybe slightly tighter, but if you ever hand torqued your lugs you know for a fact that they are extremely easy to come off versus a compressed air gun drilling the lug down. So I am sure the key locks came off just as easy if they had the proper tools.

Sorry to hear about this man. Maybe consider posting up the specs of the wheels / tire sizes just in case someone comes across it they'll know the wheels are yours.

^^^ Great help....

Looks like they made 13 different listings for $800 in the Southern California areas...

Spoon22 has a VERY GOOD chance to recover his Stolen Wheels...

I might recommend that NO ONE else on ClubLexus attempt to contact the seller or he might realize too many people at one time are inquiring..

Spoon has the name and now the proof of the photos..

Good Luck my friend..

Wow, this is completely awesome. Those certainly look like the same wheels. If they are, hopefully the seller is too stupid to realize that this thread is going, and the OP can get his wheels back. Arrange a time and place for pickup and make sure the cops are with you when you go. At the very least, they'd be in possession of recently stolen property, which is a felony in most states, and I can't imagine they'll have a good story for how they got the wheels.

I'm actually getting excited that the OP may not only get his wheels back, but the thieves might get busted too! What a tip by guile!
