A friend of a friend had his wheels stolen at H2O. They were stolen in Ocean City last night. 17x8/10 Fikse FM-10.

Please keep an eye out for these, and let me know if you see or hear anything. This is a pic of the actual car and wheels.



Thanks

A jack? ???
i dont see how a jack fits under that car

with my bags all the way up i can not fit my jack under that car

i have to lift it up with the stock jack then use the low pro jack

and that car also has bags

if it was dropped on the floor

i dont see them being able to fit a jack under the car

Agree with D

Both on the picture and the finding the wheels

1 person can not lift up the car enough to get a jack under the car

And the wheels are flush so u can not put ur finger around the fender lip

Bottom line, a friend of CB's had his wheels stolen. At this point it doesnt really matter how (determined thieves can do most anything). Hopefully if word spreads a bit someone will of seen or knows "something"...
