CARROLLTON – Now you see it, now you don’t. That’s one way to spin this theft.

Three suspects came in the middle of the night and got their wheels turning at the Classic Buick Pontiac GMC of Carrolton. It just took minutes for them to strip off two dozen tires from some pretty high-end SUVs.

And it was all caught on camera.

The security company alerted cops the crooks were pulling off the caper, but the wheel stealers rolled out in a silver pick-up before they got there.

As for the damage? Well, 24 wheels and tires at about $2,000 bucks piece. We’re talking $48,000.

Sheesh.

Looks like these tired thieves took this dealership for a ride.
