Red Clear Tails or Stock Tails

Well I have finally decided to upgrade to 01-04 tails but I cant decide between the red clear tails or the stock tails. I can get either pair for about the same price, so price isnt an issue. Is there any risk of being harassed by the police with the red clear tails or are they 100% street legal as long as I have the correct color bulbs within? Any opinions from those that have owned either pair and whether they prefer one or the other? Thanks

I tried changing my password to pen!s but they keep telling me it's too short...

You could just run amber bulbs in the turnsignal position = legal. they have dot markings on them if made by Depo..

I'm more of a fan of the stock 01-04 tails because not many trucks have amber turnsignals.

Yeah, I was kinda leaning towards the stock ones. BTW are the red areas the same color on both sets? The red/clears look a little pink...

Mine looked dead on like stock, just clear turnsignals. red was the same on both sides.
Depo is the good brand in my experience..

Re: Red Clear Tails or Stock Tails

I like red clears even though the amber appears to be more softer in color. Sprayed my bulbs with a mist of high temp silver paint to mask them from being seen through the lens. I do prefer the pre 01 style lenses though they are flat and don't bubble past the body. They were also available in red clears at one time not sure if they still are.

Re: Red Clear Tails or Stock Tails

Those do look pretty nice and close to stock. Maybe I will give them a try.

Tint spray on the inside of the lenses (except the reverse)
