When winter tires became mandatory here in 2008, many were stolen even when mounted on ugly black steelies! The novelty has worn off so perhaps it's not that necessary anymore. When we have heavy snow storms and long winters, snow blowers get stolen because people don't lock them up. We have a saying in French "L'occasion fait le larron" meaning something like "Opportunity makes a thief" (there's no direct translation that I know of).
I've been parking safely in a garage for the past 5 years at my condo but when my car was parked outside at my previous houses, I was always afraid to wake up with the car resting on 4 cement blocks and the wheels gone...That's why I had locks and I left the outdoor light near the street on all night. Not that I lived in a bad suburb, I just believe in "better be safe than sorry" and it has served me well in various domains. To each their own I guess, call me chicken if you want but at my age, I won't change!
