I was just at Meadowvale Honda to buy some fasteners (which arn't cheap!) for my bumper and as I was leaving the dealership, I spotted something that caught my eye. 2 sedans were robbed of their wheels. Couldn't believe it. It looks like the thieves drilled through the lugs.

I called the dealership right after and they didn't even know about it. Sorry for the crap phone pics.

wow this is insane, they got straight to it! This reminds me of a truck that was left on the pavement when they stoled the rims off of it. its a crazy sight to see a truck laying flat on its brakes / rotors on the pavement

If they stole steelies they probably wanted them for winter tires.

Out of all the wheels they robbed why the LX-s why not go for the coupe V6 which are hard to come by. That ****s but they have Insurance to cover it.

They're LX trim only if Honda started putting the moon roof on LX trims
I failz at looking:notworthy. Didn't see the weatherstrip on the roof. I thought EX trims comes with the foglight openings on the bumper...

The dealership where I got my accord said this happened to them as well...so they were pushing the wheel locks. Perhaps they were trying to make a quick buck, but I ended up buying it (figured i'd throw them a bone)

By the way, do wheel locks really prevent this sort of stuff?

I think these had wheel locks on them. It looked like they were drilled out. That's why the lugs were scattered all over the floor.

That makes no sense at all.

If the wheels didn't have wheel locks, then the thieves would have taken their time to put all the lugs together in one neat pile and stand them up vertically too? I've never heard of these courteous and considerate wheel thieves before. Must be a Canadian thing.
