He's always had the brakes in mind. Just needs to save up. Plus the stock brakes on the Escalade were setup for 22s so it's not as bad as most stock brakes on 24s.

um ew, flat black does not match that truck. Maybe painted black would be better.

its amazing how much a clean truck and tire shine will change a truck. Seems like a nice neighborhood. I'd suggest he puts 2 or 3 different locks on each rim.

He told me he's got this way of parking it at night where it's so tight between his house and another car that you can't even get in position to steal the wheels.

Nice.


If I was his friend I would talk him into some gloss black powder coat icon_biggrin.gif

Right now they match his running board and front lip though (until you put "Black Wow" on them, then they'll match the gloss black wheels). icon_wink.gif

Tint the taillights, ive never liked escalades or navigators for the fact they have HUGE taillights. But tinted I bet they would clean it up alot.

The new wheels look pretty good,but they definitely would look even better on his truck if they were gloss black and if the remaining chrome pieces were blacked out too.Those wheelwells could use some dressing,tell him to spray them down with some spray tire foam. icon_cool.gif I hope he added an improved vehicle security system before he put those wheels on there. icon_confused.gif Oh and as for him parking it close to another vehicle and thinking that will stop someone from taking them,think again. icon_eek.gif All they would need to move it,is just some jacking dollies. icon_smile.gif

And a driveway alert system placed before the range of the motion sensors, so when the lights come on...they see a shotgun too.

It's the same thing as driving in public...and I'm pretty sure we all do that. Same goes for license plates, there is no need to blur them out.

Why make it easier to find you?

Lets say I'm a car thief and am browsing online forums to find a nice car. Someone posts a picture of a nice car that I want to steal. If he/she has a license plate posted I can spend $50-$100 and find out where it's registered and the address.

I'm not saying it's going to be super hard for someone to find information or that there isn't other ways of doing this. But why make it easier for someone to find something. Blocking the plate can NOT hurt you anyway. So why not do it? B/c it takes an extra 30 seconds? It's just a personal choice.

An alarm probably won't help you in this case. Thief's can get around just about anything, lol.

Indeed. Break window, pop hood, cut battery cable. Within 15 seconds they just disabled your alarm. Not that anyone actually pays attention to car alarms anyway.

This is why you should have a well thought out security system,such as one with a hood lock/back up battery/a distinctive sounding siren(not that 6 tone crap that everyone has),or an air horn and various other tricks.As for people not paying attention to them,that's not always true,if you have a loud annoying sounding siren/horn,it will get someones attention. icon_eek.gif Also,I don't put security systems on my vehicles to worry if other people are going to pay attention to them,I'm the one paying attention to it via my 2way remote transmitter(which I'm usually in range of).I don't count on others to protect my stuff. icon_cool.gif
