Some good tail light covers include films, chrome and metal, stylized cut outs and blackout covers. Each cover serves a different purpose. Use the appropriate cover to achieve the desired results.
Stylized tail light covers with cut out designs, such as fish or flames, are used to enhance the aesthetic of a vehicle and serve no functional purpose. To the contrary, film covers are designed to protect the tail light and lens from rocks and debris. Metal and chrome tail light covers are often installed to protect tail lights from brush and wildlife in rural areas. Blackout covers provide protection and are often made to withstand impacts.
