FocusSport's trailer broken into at SEMA-Please Read

Randy and friends had the trailer broken into and everything of value was stolen, including a set of rims/tires and another set of tires. Here is a link-keep an eye out and spread the word...this is sad

So while we were in Las Vegas for the SEMA show we were storing our enclosed trailor at a friend's work in a pretty good area. Well, it was broken into and the bastards pretty much stole everything of value. We're pretty sure it happened last night sometime. Here are some of the items:

DPE Wheels - set of 4




In the above images the wheels have the BFGoodrich KDW tires mounted, but when they were stolen they had BFGoodrich R-1 tires mounted. However, we had a spare set of KDW tires in the trailor so they got those, too. And of course they stole all of the tools inside and gas jugs, too.

Going back to the wheels, they are 18x8 with a 4/108 bolt pattern so they aren't going to fit a ton of cars out there. They have a polished lip with black centers and chrome hardware around the outer edge as you can see.

Please be on the look-out for these wheels and other property that was stolen from us. I would imagine that these items will pop up on ebay, craigslist, or maybe even on message boards. If you feel like spreading the word that would be great, any help is appreciated. Thanks.

That really sucks. Those wheels pretty much only fits Ford 4 luggers though, so that really limits what they could be used for. I will keep an eye out on ebay and such though.

Just spoke with Randy on the phone. These are basically one-off items so if anyone see these wheels up for sale please send him an email. randy @ focussport.com

Wheels Size:
18x8 / BFGoodrich KDW tires

Manufacturer:
DPE

They may also be repainted as well so please keep an eye out on Craigslist, eBay, etc..

wow i was just looking at the other thread saying that FocusSport won the award at SEMA. A lot of people agreed those wheels made the car, as did I. Thats a damn shame, especially since they were one-off. Hopefully they will pop up on ebay or something,making it somewhat easier to trace the culprit.. BASTARDS!
