Question Mild Tint on Tail-lights

What do you all think about a mild tint to the rear tail lights, especially with blacklines on a black car? I don't mean ricer level, but something like a 50% tint?

Are you thinking of tinting the entire Blackline or just the upper half (the lighter portion)?

I like Not Ur Avg 3's idea to keep the white part of the blackline somewhat white, and only tint the red part. i think that would look pretty sick.

Will tint on the outside wear under weather??? Also Won't people see the film? I might be a pioneer. Depends on how much I like my blacklines when I install them today.

ive had smoked tails....they last...its like protection film for your taillights.

the film is only visible up close and you just see where you cut.

Another option would be smoked clearbra. They make darker shades of film and that stuff is made to play in the weather.
