hey is it possible to take out the orange part of stock breaklights so it's all white on top and red on bottum?? I think i remember hearing about this a long time ago. Or do i HAVE to buy euro tails. Thanks. And i really need to get a new tire, not tires, but tire. I have two toyo proxes in the front, and two other mixmatched ones in the back. the rear right tire is completely, and i mean completely gone. Should i put down the 200 bucks for another toyo, or is there another for less that'll be just as good?

edit: tail lights. sorry, tail lights

I have heard of people puttin them in the oven to lossen the lens from the backing, replacing the orange part, & re-adhereing with silicone..but then again this was on hondas and was probably the same kid that paints his hood black and calls it carbon fiber..I just got a sweet pair from clearlights.com, the fit is fairly good and it just rained here 5 inches with no fogging or leaks- $160..

You should try to keep the left to right tire's the same.
So put the same kind of tire as each other in the front, and if you have to get a different one in the front or back, buy the same for the other side.

Uneaven left\right treadwear is an issue too.

Shoot i was hoping to save money, but non of this oven stuff, doesn't sound promising to me. And with the tires, i guess i'll just put down the $$ and get proxes. My brother is getting a full set of toyo proxes, so if i added a fith tire to his order, is there anywhere that'll give a discount for extra tires?? thanks
