Not 100% on the law but I am tinting mine in two weeks. For the most part they leave you alone as long as the light can still shine through.

Just hope you don't get rear ended. "Officer I did not see his brake lights because they are tinted." Ops.

What product is everyone using to tint? As soon as it warms up, I want to continue blacking my stuff out. I just have the side light markers done for now. I want to do the tail light bezal and lens.

most states have a DMV website you can go to and get answers to vehicle equipment laws..

Just to let you know by giving info and trying to be helpful. Tail lights by law technically have to be able to be seen at 1,000'.

Not 100% guarantee, but usually not too much to worry about with being cited (depends on officer, area, time, if tail lights are also brake lights, number of other variables) (most have better things to do), but could possibly be a major problem if it causes an accident which could cause problems with other driver's insurance covering your car damage or injuries if your car is rear ended.


Title 47-12-204A Vehicle Equipment Lamps and Lighting Devices

A. Every motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer and pole trailer, and any vehicle which is being drawn at the end of a combination of vehicles, shall be equipped with at least two tail lamps mounted on the rear, on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable which, when lighted, shall emit a red light visible from a distance of one thousand (1,000) feet to the rear; provided that, in the case of a combination of vehicles, only the tail lamp on the rearmost vehicle need actually be seen from the distance specified.

B. Every tail lamp upon every vehicle shall be located at a height of not more than seventy-two (72) inches nor less than fifteen (15) inches.

tails, side markers with VHT Nightshades to control the darkness of tint
(less coats) although it does wear off over time

I am moving to Oklahoma to get out of California and Oklahoma is like a second home. I am a huge Sooners fan and will be going to school at OCCC, and Oklahoma is flat out just better than California, everyone in OK is nicer and the lifestyle in OK is slower pace.

for those who are tinting their lights, are you using the vinyl tint? i just blacked out my lights, well sort of. I bought the black outs from an awesome member here (BLACK10) and I applied most of them already. they look really good and it wasnt hard to put on. however i want my lights BLACKED out so they werent dark enough for me. BLACK10 is sending me some darker ones.

what is everyone else using?

How on earth did I miss this post? I agree with YOU!! I lived in NM & TX. Nothing can get me to move back to NM (at least where I lived) and I don't mind Tx too much because of the shopping and food. However, the atmosphere here is way different!!! I almost forgot how nice the people here were. Our company wanted my hubby to move back to Tx (Midland-gross) and I refused to go. Told him he can go but he isnt taking me or our daughter. I just moved back to Oklahoma about a year ago and I am planted!!

I hope to see you at these meets. I will be going for the first time on the next one. I know you can't tell by my username but I too am a huge Sooner fan.
