Yeah, I used to use wheel locks, and I found them to be more of a PITA than anything else. The average thief is probably not going to recognize the true value of the snow tires you have mounted, and not knocking them (its a great idea for a winter package!!) but the wheels are probably not going to attract the average thief either.

That being said, a DUMBER thief might think you have super expensive aftermarket wheels and go for it, but I'd think you have to be in the D for that...
