I'm removing them because it's a hassle every time I change tyres. The tyre shop always either lose the "key" or place it somewhere I can't find it later. Plus they look ugly. I'm not concerned about theft because I park in a secured underground car park. Also there are so few N cars (about 5) where I live that it makes the rims undesirable for thieves. Wheel thefts are extremely rare in my country. They usually steal the car itself which I'm also not scared of because it's so rare. If I were in the UK I'd park my car in the living room and sleep in it lolYes that is quite bad and would p*ss me off as well, as a matter of interest why are you removing the locking wheel nuts? surely by doing that they are easier to steal.
