Happened to me off me 350 a few years ago. However, stock tires and wheels cost $4k and I only paid $2,500 for the set. I made out like a bandit....

No wheel locks? I mean, I guess even with, it wouldn't matter much, but every little bit helps.

How common is this? and... What other cars do the Z wheels fit on?

Are there low-lifes with older 350s taking them or is it our fellow 370Z owners?

Also, how about mix and match wheel locks. 5 different brands so they can't just go to the dealer and get a set with the right key?

This is common. These are very attractive stock wheels, so they'll find a home on the black market pretty quickly.

yep, factory wheels are expensive too if you buy new.

i think TL and Maxima (some Altima) folks are also getting just the rears or fronts non-staggered. might want to check craig's list for local sale. you might find your set.
