    it has nice wheels on it. could i find on here if there are any tamperproof bolts,etc. to make it harder to steal? (if they're any good)... the other thing is it looks like i would want to get tints on it...any suggestions?

    well excited now!

    McGard locking wheel bolts are about the best around, try forum vendor extremewheels for prices, with regard to tints imo less is more!
