Want to stop little f*****s robbing me.

2 went from one side. My mate who also had 2 stolen gave me his other 2 as they were the same dust caps.

I woke up today and the other side have gone..

Im guessing kids putting them on their bikes and stuff.

I remember at primary school, we got a better rep on which dust caps we had and how many.

Oh, and i know the normal ones are fine but i liked the ones i had :(

Nothing wrong with black plastic ones. What about those metal ones from Halfrauds that cost about £1.50?

had mine nicked aswell. just use black plastic ones then put shiney silver ones on when you goto a show/meet ?
 
Fancy ones look a bit naff imo. Ok black plastic ones look naff too, but who wants to emphasise their tyre valves ?:S

Black plastic boring ones all the way.

Dont buy the metal ones!

I had a set of supposed "stainless steel" anti-theft dust caps off ebay...

And guess what? they rusted onto the valve, had to get 4 new valves fitted, stuck with plastic dusties ever since...

Little bit of copper grease will prevent this
 
I had 3 sets of metal ones all nicked within 2 months!

Bought some chrome Ripspeed anti-theft ones (looked the same).
And they've been on there since. ;) (5 months)

Had the richbrooks on a previous car after my black ones disappeared. Looks good with silver alloys and had no probs for 12K. Im not putting them on 182 alloys....would look naff.

Watching a mechanic change my tire during a service he had them off in 2 seconds with his thumb. Holding the centre piece with your nail ftw.
