I wouldn't get the covers. Do real tint. I bought the tinted covers from americanmuscle and one of them fell off on the highway (was not my fault because I put them on correctly) and they would not replace it

Just get the tint from AM. It'll save you time and money and give you what you're looking for. Just clean the lights, use soapy water in a spray bottle and apply. Give it a little time to dry and magic!

The soapy water allows you to move it the tint how you want it.

Yupp. It's vinyl, not regular tint. I've had it on a set of tails since 05 or so and its still holding strong.

Definitely get the vinyl. I got the covers when they came with the headlight covers, other than that i wouldn't even have purchased them. I used to have VHT on there, and after 2 seasons of Florida weather no amount of wax or rubbing could bring it back to a glossy finish. Vinyl tint FTW!

Save your money and buy PLASTIDIP lens tint spray can its just like a VHT spray can but you can remove it by just peeling it off your lamps

I like them because you can remove them at night and actually see where you are going...
