Some people are real jealous pricks, and they definitely do stuff like this on purpose.

Fortunately this has not happened to my GC yet when parking far away from people, but if it were to happen, I would REALLY make their day and go for their sidewalls.

Retaliating by keying their piece of crap is no big thing for them, but two popped tires...now that's justice served. Make sure to check for cameras first!

Re: Never fails...

I know someone (ahem) who keeps a valve stem valve removal tool in their glovebox.

Re: Never fails...

Just take off their valve stem cover, put a little pebble in it and screw it back on. This way the air comes out but their tire is not destroyed. (just in case you get caught) Of course I've never done this but know someone that has.

Hmmm...

So if some asshole purposely parks right up against my vehicle while I'm out in "no-mans" land of the parking lot, he then door dings or scratches my vehicle (which costs ME money to repair)...I'm supposed to worry about if his tires get damaged?

No offense...but I don't think so. I'll make sure his little act of indiscretion costs him money as well.

Yep....ya gotta pay to play. Tires are nice because these a$$holes don't care about dents. If they have to walk, they'll have time to consider their mistake.

No, your suppose to worry about getting caught. Remember there are cameras everywhere. All they gotta do is go review the footage and then they may get your plate number and then you'll have cops at your door. Then you'll be in court charged with vandalism and have to pay for damages. Where as if you get caught taking their air I would imagine the penalty would be a lot less severe. Air is alot cheaper than new tires.

Just saying......its your chioce to make.
