Just found these while surfing the net.

About $80 for the set so I've read. Near on impossible to remove or at the very least a massive pain in the a*** for the low down C**k sucking thief who wants your rims.

it looks like they have a sleeve around the nut so no you'd need a really thin socket

Yeah and when you bash on that really thin socket it cracks and is useless to remove lock nut.

No point having it in the car unless you take it with you when you leave the vehicle.

I've heard of rims being stolen the night they were bought. I guess all kinds of things happen, the owner may be in on it, or maybe someone related to their supply. Maybe if you buy some and the supplier asks your address or any personal info make it false, and also keep your car in a garage or out of sight. And if the blokes at the pub or even your friends ask about them, tell them they are cheap copies and will probably crack.

Unless you keep it hidden in the car.
