Dave, I think he is saying tongue in cheek, that big deal if his wheels get stolen, he will just get another new shiny set from the insurance company. Although there would be a deductible. I would never see the bright side in in having my wheels stolen. I am sure there would be damage involved as well. Thieves aren't very careful jacking it up and supporting it.

As to the OP's question on spacers. Yes you need new longer bolts and you should definitely ditch the locks, they are a pain in the ass.

I think 15mm in the rear with 668M's will leave you underwhelmed. I went with 12mm/17mm and I feel like I 18mm out back would be perfect. I went with Dinan spacers, they come in 10,12,15,17 and 20. 20 would be too much out back. In terms of bolt size, pick your spacers over at Dinan's site and it will tell you what bolts you need.
