The end of 2021 saw an increase in catalytic converters being stolen from vehicles around Northern Illinois. This price of the parts is attractive to some criminals but there are other parts of your vehicle that are enticing too. Thieves may be eying your car's tires too.

The automotive website, Motor Biscuit, says there may be some serious value for secondhand tires.

Geico says that a set of tires can go for $1,000-$5,000 or more.
