my wife's cruze eco came from a dealer in southfield, mi (on the border with detroit/wayne county) and every car they had there had wheel locks on it...even the steelies on cheap models.
they had a similar incident to this with several cruze eco's b/c their wheels are forged aluminum. 17lbs a wheel, plus excellent resale value on goodyear lrr new tires...
No security cameras at the dealership.

I wonder how much damage was done to the vehicles seeing as they're not even on bricks?
The OP did also state that one of the vehicles had locking lug nuts on and they didn't touch that one, so take that as you will. It's amazing how they managed to actually remove 72 wheels and haul them away. Must have turned up with a U-Haul and an air compressor in back; wonder if they used the dealership's outlet to power it?
So I'm guessing these wheels must be a new bling fad for some older vehicle (old Buicks maybe?), or the tires are worth a decent amount of money, or both.
They must have went down the line and removed the lugs on all of them then started back at the beginning, then jacked them up quickly, tossed the tires, and dropped them. Can you imagine trying to explain this to a cop if he drove on the lot and caught you in the middle of it.
That usually turns up a ton of results. Looks like the only other option is Saturn Outlook

Yeah oem wheels are big business on Craig's and Ebay. It sucks because you used to be able to score a deal on a full set of OEM take-offs, like $300-$500 for a full set of alloys and tires with only 100-200 miles on them.
Then this kind of stuff went crazy and now people want like $1000 for a set of middle of the road tires and somewhat ugly stock wheels.
