Know the feeling Tony, accidently left mine on after JAE, went out 10 minutes later and one had been removed - :tsktsk: :tsktsk: :tsktsk:

They even managed to avoid the camera's aswell :blink:

I think it's more the fact i did not catch them doing it that gives me the hump ,what is it with people though that they think they can just take what is not theirs.it's like a disease in this country ,

These anti-theft valves you mention. Are they without the stem completely. I've seen some in the garage where I've just had my MOT and you can remove the stem with a key and it's flush with the wheel.

The trouble with this country is that the crooks use the law rather than live in fear of it. Crooks DON'T FOLLOW THE LAW. Only law-abiding citizens do.

In the US you have the right to do a Tony Martin which is as it should be.

My first set of anti theft valves were nicked from outside go kart centre in Manchester last year, after kids (and I know who they were but could not proove it) nicked the original. My latest anti theft ones are still on and have survived. It just drives me nuts that people nick things like that.

That's not the point. Who's going to interfer with your car when you could show up with a gun in hand?

As I said. The crooks aren't afraid of the law. They hide behind it.

It sounds like these anti-theft ones aren't the ones I've seen which are flush with the rims; no valve stem sticking out.

How do the flush ones work, sorry to be thick but the valve sticks out so how do you remove it? :unsure:

That was the first time i had bought it. It was the dust caps that sold it for me. It isn't too bad though - a car mag that doubles up as a porno ;)
