This can work to a degree but folks would still jack their car up with jacks and roll it over. True story.

Sorry about that.....I got locks for my rims but I'll heed the advice on here to park real close to the curb or a wall so a thief can't get the jack under the ride.

Here's some advice for everyone about hotel parking, even if you pay for the parking: there is always a no liability statement somewhere. Hotels assume no liability. This general rule pretty much standard for any lot.

Sadly enough, you're absolutely right...I haven't actually seen it done but I'm sure if they want it bad enough, they will get it.
