You will still need the receiver component so stealing them is not that attractive. Some morons will steal them for sh1ts and giggles anyway. It guess depends on how noticeable they are. Maybe a better way to make them would be as complete valve stems, have your tire guy install them.That actually is a brilliant idea. I love it! But it's hard to believe they have "Anti Theft Design". Looks like they are just caps to me. Unscrew it and steal all 4.
