He told the guy he is taking them because he stole them. The guy got real nervous (I think he peed his pants ) and started a few stories about how he got them from some guy ... who got them from a guy... etc. The guy's girlfriend wanted to call the cops, but obviously he didn't. In the end he got his rims back. I know my friend tried to involve the police, but I am not sure if the guy was ever arrested.

    Insurance will not go up, it is comprehensive car coverage. My agent said the only way my insurance might increase is if I get jacked like 4 times in one year. If I put the claim in under home owners, there is a possibility it might go up, but that is why i have for comprehensive. I didn't have to tell them the stuff was in the car before it happened, I just had to provide receipts, and have evidence of the items being in my car(pictures of it in the car already, or pictures of where the stuff was)

    Glad to hear things worked out for ya! And that's reassuring - I have State Farm, too!

    Insurance is like a bucket of water. Each month you pour a couple glasses of water in. Every once in a while you take a few teaspoons out.

    That's pretty smart of your friend and lucky too that he could find it so quickly. A good opportunity to report the guy to the police too.

    you can cover "custom" parts under your insurance.
    I have progressive, i am assuming its the same for State farm.

    there are different tier levels you can be covered on.
    I have mine set @ $2000. and it costs me $11 per 6month period.

    "custom" parts covers ANYTHING you add to the car that is not OEM. be it engine parts, exhausts tips, rims, anything..lol

    when my car was borken into, they snatched up my parts of my pc ,(screen, diNovo mini, mifi ,dvd burner)
    all i had to do was provide receipts and they cut me a check right there.
    The insurance guy had a carputer also lol.
    had a printer in the trunk, thats how he printed my check.
