    A couple of my friends have recently had their spare wheels stolen from under their vehicles. Both were overnight in their respective drives. :eek:hsy: Is this a common thing. What does everybody do as a precaution against this. My mates are now both considering just carrying the spare...

Probably best to get the bolt before losing the wheel!? I'll be getting my new wheel and bolt shortly- Buying two...

    So I've now had my second spare 17" steel wheel nicked, this one protected by the 3 pin security wheel bolt, which it would seem isn't much protection when for £12 anyone can buy one. Does anyone know of any modifications that can be made to the cage so that a lock can be fitted, would...
