no to tail light tinting. why would you want to make something to help other drivers not rear end you harder to see? and do not say that by tinting them it won't reduce disability, how can adding black ANY percentage NOT reduce visibility.

Also looks ricerish.

Don't tint the tail lights... Like others have mentioned, it's difficult for people to see your brake lights.

Hell no! Please don't do it. A little smoked would be okay though.

I'm not really sure but I think it's the same thing as tinting it except you use a very light tint shade.

Whole time I thought you were aiming for something like this, that's honestly a no no in my book. If it's something really light, I think it's okay. At the end of the day, it's all up to you though!
