I personally love the all black tail light but for safety reasons (and not getting a ticket) I have lightly tinted tails and the backup lights are not tinted over...just like those.

They look good! Smile

i said if i had it done over i would fade it in. as dark as i have it now on the edges and fade it to a hair lighter in the middle where the bulbs are.

since our bulbs are so sunk in housing compared to the lens itself it doesn't transfer the light well when tinted. on my truck they are as dark as my car but light up just as light as stock lights.

btw- those look a million times better than those led tails you had.

They look great.. that bit of red you can see in them will help prevent a a-hole LEO from stopping you.

mine are darker than that and i have not got a ticket yet.

yesterday on my way to downers grove i passed a cop with my halos on and he started to follow me. it was real sunny so i thought he might bother me about the tails, he followed me for 4 turns and then just went the other way. i guess they didn't bother him or the led strips work well enough.

you guys have told me you think they aren't bright enough, but i think most of the time you guys think i'm using my brakes im not. i drive in autostick everywhere and i downshit to stop lights or to slow down most of the time. i hardly use my brakes.
