There’s not much information to go on here, but this story is unfortunately so commonplace that we don’t need very much of it.
Autblog stumbled across a video on Reddit that has now been made private documenting the aftermath of a wheel heist at a Detroit area Dodge dealership. According to them, thieves broke into Sterling Heights Dodge and stole over $70,000 in wheels, leaving numerous Dodge Chargers and Challengers sitting on blocks.
We hate giving any credit to these law breakers, but they knew exactly what vehicles to target. Rather than going for the V6-powered Chargers and Challegners they targeted the high-performance Hellcat, SRT 392 and R/T variants of the cars. These models are obviously offered with larger, more expensive wheels and tires than their V6 counterparts.
A total of 14 cars were said to be targeted in the heist, placing the value of each set of tires and rims at about $5,000. Autoblog reached out to both the Sterling Heights Police Department and the Dodge dealer for comment, but has yet to hear anything back.
