too hard to see? what are they tinted with like 5%?
i think places like autozone sells led bulbs that should be brighter but i know they're not too cheap.

Pretty dark....but not too dark IMO




Hey, a question about the LEDs. I was reading on that link that it was best to use a bulb the same color as the lens, in my situation red, but then I as reading elsewhere when people put red bulbs in, they weren't bright enough under the red lens and had to go with the white ones. Which should I get? Red or white?

That is the problem I have, but I thik I would have that weather or not the lights were tinted. I hope the new bulbs do the trick, I am going to order the red ones...we will see.

BTW, you called it with the cops. I have had cars in the past with tinted lights for years with out problems. I accually go pulled over for the tinted windows, he let me go on that with a warning......what was funny thought is I just let the window tinters shop after getting my front windows done darker5% all around baby...looks sick!
