First I would say to do a search here, www.termpro.com in 'Auto Security' & www.sounddomain.com in 'Security Sense'.

MUCH good info to be learned! ;)

To specifically address the theft of rims, I would recommend wheel locking lugs. Some put 1 on each wheel, but if you really value them & they cost a bit of $, I would highly recommend all 4 for each wheel. They come with a special key that you use with a normal lug wrench.
I would also recommend a tilt sensor with the alarm. This will detect any attempt to jack up the car (either for stealing rims/tires or towing).

Good tip, but it is a well known fact that the "Club" can be easily defeated.

Don't need to say how, but it can.


It would be better to get a "column lock" to prevent breaking into the ignition & hot wiring.

Also, I have seen 'brake locks' that go down where the pedals are.
