There's nothing more eye-catching to a thief than a new car or bike. Your brand new pride and joy is just asking to be stolen, especially if you leave it parked on the street. That's why designer Dominic Wilcox made stickers to fool stupid thieves into thinking your wheels aren't worth stealing.

Despite the fact they look quite convincing in the photos. Wilcox doesn't offer any guarantees his stickers will actually work. He does say, however, that he placed them on his bike and it hasn't been stolen yet. What more evidence do you need?

Part of the appeal of owning a new car is showing it off, which you clearly can't do with these stickers applied. However, if that means you get to keep the aforementioned item from being stolen while parked in unseemly parts of town, it's all good.

      Strange thought pattern. Buy a nice new car but because you don't want anyone stealing your new car you put stickers on it so it looks like a P.O.S. So you end up driving around a new car that looks like a P.O.S. but secretly isn't. But it might as well be since it looks like one. Odd idea.

      Thieves steal cars to sell the parts. Rust on a few panels won't faze anyone, but it'll probably match your "tailgate ball sack."

        I have a good friend who drives a 2007 Lexus LS430! I keep telling him to buy CHRYSLER but h keeps going back to LEXUS every other year!
        He took the car home and installed a device he makes for all his cars and trucks! And went back to the dealer for some paperwork. As they were going into a restaurant two thugs came up to the car and told him to get, yeah, they had a gun! When he got out of the car he pressed a button that starts an electronic timer that will shut the fuel off in 90 seconds! If they're lucky they might get about three blocks and the car dies and won't start! Naturally they get out and run. H waits till they're gone and goes back to the car and re loads the device so it's ready for the next asshole who wants to CARJACK his car! So far he's had an attempted CARKACKING of his GMC Sierra Pickup and a restored 1950 olds 88 slope back 2dr, I call them SEDANETTS! Both times he used the device and the cars were saved!

      The stickers are dumb, but do remind me of something cool I saw.

      A couple who are acquaintances of mine had just had a baby, and it had several medical problems that necessitated reliable transportation be available at any hour (as opposed to depending on public transport as they had been. Problem was they lived in a neighborhood prone to car theft and break-ins.

      Well they found a really nice low-mileage late-80's (this was in the late-90's) Chrysler turbo wagon in pristine condition.

      Before they brought it home for the first time they stopped at a junkyard and bought a used door in a different color, and two random hubcaps. Removed the perfectly good stock door, fitted the mismatched one, added the mismatched hubcaps. Then they unbolted the front and rear bumpers and re-installed them at an angle. Next they had one of the whitewalls tires flipped around on the rim so they now had three whitewalls and one blackwall. Lastly they covered the perfectly good front and rear seats with thrift-store blankets. A run through every puddle and muddy parking lot they could find finished the look.

      The car looked so crappy after all of that, no one ever bothered it. A few years later when they'd moved to a better neighborhood, they reversed all the changes (they'd kept the original parts), had the car detailed, and sold it for nearly what they'd paid for it.

      Would thieves know my new aluminum mountain bike won't rust?

      If the door dings in my car aren't enough of a deterrent, a couple of rust stickers won't make a difference.

      I could be wrong but in the picture their looks like a bit of a rust sticker on a plastic bumper. Hmm, Best keep the stickers on the metal parts eh?.
