    i had the covers on mine... they attach with heavy duty industrial velcro...never had any problems with them falling off....

    I actually got pulled over today for them being too dark :( (I'm in Cali though)
    I will not be using them again....

    Yeah how much did you pay for the covers. I get pulled over alot... becuase i dont have mud flaps and the cop was being a dick and said my tires stuck outside my wheel wells too much? he was just looking for something else i think. haah

    I'm just curious. Why would you want to give the cops another reason to pull you over? You say you get pulled over alot already.

    thats lame.. its not gunna hurt no one but i guess its the law. If i get pulled over ill deal with it then i guess, cops here are pretty nice when it comes to stuff of this nature, they just tell ya to fix it, no big deal

    Yeah your absolutely right. Its just that where I live its a 24-hour town so a lot of times it turns out to be more then just illegal tail lights. It's more like a DUI or something of that nature.:p
