Rear tire? Keep it on

I never really thought the rear tire was good looking on the back, but KEEP IT ON. I got rear ended today and look at the damage to his car and mine. I had almost nothing wrong.

This isn't really a question forum but if you were thinking about taking it off, it's better than any bumper I could think of.

Probably had trouble seeing your brake lights through those tinted lenses....

I had so many people tailgate me with tinted lenses. Put leds in and no more issues.

Why would they tailgate you? Seems idiotic. Anyways, I'm installing a switch to cut my running & brake lights for those special citizens that tailgate so they can enjoy a ball hitch in their grill as much as I enjoy making sure there is stopping distance for two every 2 seconds in my rear view.

I hear yah! Every time I would slow down to turn etc, people right on my ....The LED's really seem to be more noticeable & people stay back when I'm slowing down or signaling. (previous owner did the lens tinting:facepalm:)

I hear that. I once pushed a lifted and locked wrangler sittin on 35s about 50 feet with the nose of my XJ. Guy was asleep in his jeep and didn't want to take the girl he brought out home. Pushed him right up to the edge of a hill, and he had the brakes locked the whole time. Needless to say my Cherokee looked similar to that white thing on the pictures. Just nowhere near as dented.

That was at around 7am and we just emptied the coolers lol. Fun night.
