|COMET: Communities of Maspeth & Elmhurst Together
Captain Cody, 104th Precinct, discussed rims/tires being stolen off cars citywide at the COP104 meeting tonight and offered a tip to deter this from happening. He said a lot of the cars being targeted are Honda, Toyota Camry and Nissan but if you have expensive tires on any vehicle you could be a victim. A good way to prevent the theft of tires and rims is to simply park close to the curb and angle your front wheels to the curb while parking. This does not allow the perpetrators enough room to fit the tire iron between the curb and the lug nuts. Obviously this will only help the prevent tires being stolen on one side of the vehicle, but losing only two tires is better than losing four. Also consider purchasing locks for your tires.
