RADs Just in Time for Summer

So after hearing and seeing a bunch of cars being left on blocks because of dirtbags robbing wheels..I decided to replace all my lug bolts with RAD wheel locks to make it extra diffcult for any would be thieves.

The challenge was finding a vendor that would sell me (10) 36mm shank and (10) 42mm shanks to accomodate my spacers and with all the same key lock. Fortunatly EAS stepped up and was able to get them for me. The quality is great and they are TUV approved. This is a simple investment for anyone looking to protect their wheels and car.

So according to you logic I should just leave the regular wheel lugs..and maybe the keys in the car and windows open..

Its called a deterent..if thieves have to screw with 20 keyed locks vs 4 or none thats better for me..no?

I'm in a suburb of Stuttgart. I just got the KICS R40's with locks myself. It's a problem here too - Some dealers add locking lugs here because of theft & try to pass it on to the new owner. A lot was went though & all the airbags were stolen last year. If they want your car they will take it.
