How do I protect my car from thieves? I headed out to work this morning and was confronted by this
. (that would be all four tires and wheels - $750 worth) I have a Clifford alarm system, I always park in highly visible areas, I stay out of "bad areas", there is a police academy 100 yards from where this picture was taken. What do I do to make this never happen again? [more inside]

The alarm never went off. Which I find surprising. No one saw anything. The apartment complex has a roving security guard. I had regular lugs on the wheels, but I've switched to the lock type now. I'm willing to spend some money to secure the car and it's tires. Obviously spending $750 over and over should be able to buy some serious security.
Unfortunately I don't know how to spend that money wisely. What works? What is hype? I like the car and don't want to trade it in for an old Pinto with junkyard rims. I also like San Diego and don't want to move to some rural wasteland.
