    Urgent help needed! Attempted theft of wheels

    basically someones tried stealing my wheels, both alloys on drivers side had 2 bolts missing and i dont have locking wheel nuts because i didnt think there were any.

    i have kei rss wheels with the star shaped bolts does anyone know if there are any other bolts that fit these??

    how have other people got round it with these alloys?

    thanks

    If you dont have locking wheel bolts why did they leave with just two bolts and not your wheels?

    Couldnt the bolts just not have been tightened up when wheels last off?

    i dont know why they didnt get it off they must have ran off or something. doubt they would just rattle out as they were tightened with a breaker bar. the other 2 bolts on the back wheel were quite loose aswel.
