Question Wheel Locks

Do to some recent theft where I spend some time on weekends... I was looking for some wheel locks because once again BMW doesn't provide them as stock just like an alarm. I have a 2008 328xi coupe and would like some recommendations or links to some locks I can use on the car. I searched but only found a link someone posted for $300+ locks and thats a little nuts.

thanks


btw I have the OEM alarm with the sensors, would that go off if the car was locked and someone tried to put the car on blocks and take off the tires and rims?

Yes, Alarm should go off sue to the motion/tilt caused by jacking the car.
