I've had both. I initially put the vinyl tint strips on my stock tails and they looked great. The vinyl held up well, wasn't too bad to install if you take your time.
About a year or so ago I decided on the Raxiom tails when they were on sale. The new lights are a direct fit, wiring is identical and fitment is factory.
Highly recommend them. The tint is perfect for any color stang, not too dark to attract the wrong kind of attention
