same with your door locks, If a thief wants it bad enough the DA is gonna break your windows

sad but true

Bolt cutters and cable cutters can do do that
Usually I don't carry a spare , just a AAA membership card.
I just throw in the the oversized wheel in my bed if I go trail driving.
If the theif wants your wheel bad enough , he can steal it!

That sucks. But a tire lock will deter them some, but if they want it bad enough, they will get it somehow.

My insurance does towing, but if its like 1AM and I got a flat, im not gonna want to screw around and wait for that wrecker. Id rather get that tire changed my self and get on my way.
