Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

I got home from work today to find two of the wheels down the drive had been stolen.

I wouldn't mind so much if it wasnt the pair I took of the legerra last week leaving me with two odd alloys on the front and two odd alloys on the back. Any number of other alloy wheels down the drive they could have nicked but no, they had to nick two out of the only matched set of four 15" rims I had.

If I ever find out who did it I will make sure they never steal anything ever again. SO angry.

I have reported it and will now be checking ebay hourly :-) They have probably just been added to a whole heap of other nicked stuff to be weighed in as scrap. Scumbags.

Its not even as if both tyres were new or anything, one was ok the other borderline, the whole reason I took them off in the first place.

The wheels in question are wolfrace 7 X 15" 4 stud 108mm with a 15mm offset, 195/60/15 tyres (one bald)

They are the 5 spoke rims in most of the recent pictures of the Legerra.

Much appreciated Dave.
Most of the steelware in my house was made in Toledo, NOT Sheffield.

P.S. if you happen to "fall over" and hurt your thumbs...as you do like, i can offer you all sorts of sympathy.

Cheers Dave & Mike.
I'm more pissed off that they broke the only set of four than the fact they stole something. BiB were very good really, told them not to bother coming round though, there will be no forensics as no suitable surfaces. Got a crime incident number and all that but more important, got the description of the wheels on there. If anything should turn up then they are aware. I reckon thats about the best I can hope for really.
I had intended to buy some new ones for Leggy2, something a bit more 'up to date' but not before winter had gone.
The tyres I have on now are new at the back and will see me through as they have deep enough treads (i hope)
I always have the old 13's with colways on to fall back on for snow.
It motivated me to repair the CCTV camera, set up the computer with motion detection software and get it all set up, full colour by daylight and B/W by night at 640x480 when I get the focus set it will read clear reg numbers across the cul de sac with no problem. I have loads of camera's at work ranging from little discreet wireless units to PTZ domes about 9 inches across, all with internet capabilities so I can log in from work and see my own drive in realtime.
I will have to put the camera up on the wall instead of on a stand on the window sill though. I have turned the 'active' light off tonight just to see what effect the camera has from outside.

Dave, if we put enough lime in it will soak up the water...

I'll get up Belmont tomorrow and bail the water out of the grave again, I'd leave it in there but sh*t tends to float to the top.

Just putting the CCTV camera up, i'm banking on them coming back Dave.
Already put the police on notice that I will call them, probably after I cut their fingers off with the broadsword.

If they've been once they'll be back, you need the chain the rest up and lock the garage. Pikey scroats
