My dh went out to game stop when he got home from the store he noticed a missing cap from the wheel. Now I'm looking online to buy one and they have tons on ebay from all types of vehicles and they are used and only sell one . WTF? Do you think people steal these to get money out of it?????? Ridiculous if they do!

People will steal anything to make a buck. It's really sad.

We're assuming that it was popped out it's really easy to just get a screw and pop it out and that was the rear tire,the one in the front my dh said was loose like they didn't finish. Who knows. ufff.

 Yes its sad but true. My friend went to bed with 4 matching hub caps and woke up to find that one of them was missing. She wished that they had taken all 4 b/c she said now I have to drive around with only 3 and I'm not taking the other 3 off. LOL.

When I lived in Philly, I saw ppl in my apartment complex get entire wheels stolen - rims, tires and all - car was left jacked up on cinder blocks.... yeah I moved not too long after that thankfully!
