Chevrolet Marketing Officer Tim Mahoney Has Wheels Stolen Off 2015 Tahoe In Detroit14
We love that General Motors has decided to keep its business operations right in downtown Detroit. The downtrodden city’s economy and job market essentially relies on the company’s presence. There is some downsides to working in Detroit though, something Chevrolet global marketing chief Tim Mahoney learned the hard way earlier this month.
Upon walking out from his condo to his 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe, Mahoney discovered the wheels had been stolen off of it. The thieves appear to have left the car on some bricks and rocks and frankly, were surprised the SUV didn’t topple off of them. Mahoney is fortunate his Tahoe didn’t have more damage done to it, as he said he only managed to get “425 miles on the odometer before the wheels went missing.”
Mahoney isn’t a Detroit native, growing up in the safe and small town of Haddonfield, New Jersey. We’d be surprised to learn that anyone had ever stolen anything in Haddonfield, so Mahoney probably isn’t used to having to watch for rim thieves. Welcome to Detroit, Tim. Enjoy your stay.

It’s a 2015 Tahoe… not 2014.
Just a typo, fixed.
Um, Nope! Still says 2014 in the article body. Either way, it still looks nice, even w/o the rims and tires.

I was just going to say this is a 2015 Tahoe, not a 2014. Article is inaccurate. Nothing will deter car thieves. If they want your car, they will take it anyway they can.
At least they can’t take the 3rd row out now as they are bolted down.
At least it happened to a GM exec and not a poor retail end user. GM can easily bring down a new set of wheels and tires and the exec will be on his way. No big deal.
It can’t be that safe if he grew up in Haddonfield.
I’m surprised he didn’t have it in a garage. Still, sad situation for him. Hope the thieves are caught.
I thought the new security system with inclination sensors was suppose to solve this problem.
No wheel locks?
Only in USA…
“At least it happened to a GM exec and not a poor retail end user”
Is that what po people in Detroit drive?
This country will have a reset button pushed soon…
And sometime after that happens we will see up-armored SUVs as this one, sailing down clear roadways.
If you think there’s a large gap between rich and poor today, perhaps you’ll want to do a little research on life in various third world nation.
The gap will increase and street thieves will be shot on sight.
We will all be living in a Detroit.
Same 6 lug bolt pattern the thief has on his rustbucket 1988 Chevy 1500.
How can thief theft of car wheels? there are no lock for protection?
I don’t get it , no alarm system ? No wheel locks ? And I’m sure no one seen anything. Something smells like bullsh!t to me
