Default Awesome start to my day...

Yup, nice neighborhood too. Filed a police report and trying to figure out what the next step is.

Sorry for your loss.
Were they 16x7 silver Motegi MR7's?

SUCK!


Did they just snap your wheel studs on the rear?

All studs are intact, the only damage (besides the wheels being stolen) is that the side skirts are being slightly pushed up and might be cracking the paint.

That garage has two motorcycles, five bikes, and a drum set in it.

They were nonstandard splined lugs. I'm really kinda baffled how they got them.

1) They did you a favor by getting rid of 0 offset herrafrush wheels
2) Start watching clubroadster classifieds
3) I am only half joking


Sorry for your loss man, I'd be raging pretty hard right now regardless what wheels they were.

While I used to like the wheels, they were getting old (I got them almost 5 years ago, before sportmax even had a website). Wheel changes are just better when you're prepared for them, not in the middle of a week that you have a bunch of **** going on in.

I'm watching craigslist, honda-tech, and the like to see if they pop up. I'm not so much pissed that I don't have them any more, but pissed that I didn't catch the lowlife in the act. We'd have one less scumbag here in Orlando if my roommates and I would have got to him first.

Bummer man :( Like others said I don't care what kind of wheels they were, I'd be pissed.

If you had the key lugnuts I'm not sure how they'd get them either. Do you keep the key in the center console like I do? They could have just used that if it wasn't locked...

at least they left the car.

we had our 98 civic stolen and they took the drag wheels (sportmax equivlanet) and left the car on a rock like that.

it also had spline lugnuts.... which are totally worthless for security because you can buy the adapter key anywhere.




they did not take the used lugnuts.
