    Wheel trims!

    Just a thought that I keep having at work and thought I would share.

    Why do people put two cable ties on wheel trims? Is it to stop people from stealing them? Or is it to stop them from falling off??

    But saying that the thought I have every time is what happens if you have a flat tyre? The people who put them on there car have nothing in the car to cut them off, so how do they think they will get them off if they need too?

    Just my mad thoughts lol.

    That is a good point, never really thought about that! They must carry some sort of penknife or cutters with them in the car though.

    Its a style accessory, seriously it looks really cool with the tie raps, personally i wouldn't cut them down after they've been attached. I'd show them off. lol

    I put clear cable ties on my Vectra wheel trims. If someone really wanted to steal them they would, but hey ho.

    I carried a small pair of snips in my glove box

    Its also the same for my wheel nut covers. No way can I get them off with a finger, so I carry a pair of long nosed pliers in the boot too.
