I prefer the 94/95 over the 96-98. At first I thought about changing them over to 96-98's but the more mine grew on me the more I loved them. I'm sure there are several guys or gals on this forum that can chime in and give you any info on how to paint your lights.

These are what I have. They started life as chrome w/ smokes lenses. I taped the lenses off w/ painters tape and sanded the chrome w/ 1000 grit sandpaper and sprayed them black, w/ about 4-5 LIGHT coats. I want horizontal for my car but these were in it when I bought it. Thinking of posting a trade on craigslist in Raleigh NC area.

I can tell you that when you wedge on wider tires, if they roll out past the width of the rim, you'll have deflection in the sidewalls. It will feel
Like the rear is trying slide out when cornering hard. I put 275/40's on some stock 6bar wheels and had this issue. Was great in a straight line, felt dangerous when cornering. I also wore the centers down because they'd ballon when I'd spin them.
