So are you guys telling me that all of you don't run wheel locks? Yes, it may be pointless to a professional thief. But isn't it good at deterring amateurs? In addition, you are delaying the theft by atleast another 30sec to 1 minute because they have to work with the wheel lock?

Now here's my question, what happens if you run 5 wheel locks for each wheel?? You've might make his life a bit tougher.

When I first got my car from the dealer, the factory wheel bolts were not that tight. In fact, I was able to use a 5-series Z-wrench and was able to break them free with little effort. This suggests to me that they don't need to be that tight (90ft-lb) so I'm assuming using 5 wheel locks will be safe.
