Some Of The Ways To Protect Your Custom Alloy Wheels From Theft

Sep 11, 2008
Wheels play an important role not only in a car's performance but also in a car's safety as well. Alloy wheels are automobile wheels which are made up of magnesium or aluminum metals. They are also known as magnesium wheels and are owned by a large number of car owners who want to have lighter, prettier and beautiful wheels on their cars.

These wheels are different from the steel wheels of the cars because they are lighter in weight and can improve the speed of car. The alloy styled wheels are good conductors of heat, which reduces the chance of brake failure. These days most of the car owners prefer to have alloy wheels for their cars to give them a stylish look.

The alloy wheels are included as the standard equipment in the luxurious and sports cars. The automobile manufacturers have produced wheel locks and one of the wheel nuts requires a special key to remove them. This has greatly reduced the amount of theft.
Many top wheel brands of the world have been manufacturing the alloy wheels. These brands include M.B Italia, Wolfhart, BBS Wheels, American Racing Wheels, Konig Wheels and Rimstock.

The magnesium alloy wheels have also been used extensively on racing cars. Magnesium alloy wheels are very expensive and therefore are not very common to street vehicles. The high prices of the alloy wheels have made them more attractive for thieves who steal the wheels and resell them.

The statistics show that more than twenty sets of the alloy wheels are stolen every week and it has become the major concern of many car owners in the USA and other countries. You can protect your alloy wheels from being theft with the following guidelines.

Equip your car with a good immobilizer.

Lock your wheel nuts properly.

Use alarm system in your car.

Research shows that thieves are finding ways to unlock the nuts and bolts of wheels so you need to use the ultra locking wheel nuts to add them added security.
A set of alloy wheels improve the appearance of your car and make it standout among other cars. There is a broad range of styles, sizes and models available in the alloy wheels and you have to do some research before buying alloy wheels for your car.

Buying the best quality wheels and giving them regular measures of attention can provide you best value of your money.
