Do you see anything wrong with these photos? It’s a beautiful Nissan GT-R with one notable problem: it has no tires.

The Nissan sports car was the victim of a robbery in Long Island as the petty crooks took out all four tires from their spokes in the middle of the night. The hapless owner, who we can only assume was dozing off when the crime happened, had no way of knowing that his gorgeous ride would end up tireless when the sun came up.

We don’t condone – nor will we ever – any form of robbery but we can bet that the thiefs who stole the GT-R’s wheels had amateurs written all over them.

That’s because you can always tell the difference between a smooth criminal from a riff-raff just looking for kicks on a weekend night. The former knows what he’s trying to steal and sets about it in a discrete and timely way. The latter just takes anything he can and prays that it’s worth something out on the market.

As in the case of this one, we’re guessing that those douches had no idea what a Nissan GT-R is, so they just decided to swipe the tires, thinking that they’re worth more than the whole car itself.

To those who did this, we believe in karma, boys; sooner or later, it’s going to run you down.

Well, is it not a sign or something that something needs to be done with the car’s security. Did it not made any sounds when people were trying to rob the tires?

Haha dumb, maybe they can’t open up the GT-R’s door, that’s why instead of the whole car they stole the wheels, better than nothing...

At least the owner won’t have to worry about the GTR’s lame assed launch control!

OR maybe, just maybe, it was all part of a bigger plan. Maybe some guy had the idea of building his own GT-R. Stealing one would have brought the cops on him. Instead he takes the tyres, knowing he can get away with it. Next he’ll put out the engine from another GT-R, then a transmission from another and the suspension from yet another. And finally he will steal the shell. He puts it back together and voila! He has a GT-R.

It could have been some Z06 driving douchebag who did this.

That would depend on the alarm and the type of sensors. Almost all work on the principal of vibration. The thunderstorms and loud cars for that matter create sound waves which disturb the air flow around the sensors alerting them which sets off the alarm in turn. Some are more sensitive.

Why do I always hear dozens of alarms comming out from ty cars in thunderstorms and nothing happens when guys put a GTR on a few bricks to steal the tyres??

The owner must be an amature also to leave a car like that out side over night
