Three Pros of VViViD+ Light Smoke Air-tint Headlight Tints
VViViD created a new kind of headlight tint called the VViViD+ headlight tints. These tints are thicker and are made of more resistant material when compared to their regular headlight tints. So, if that was an issue for you with previous headlight tints, then this is a great alternative for you. They do not come in precuts.
Besides using more resistant material, VViViD is also using an improved vinyl formula that almost completely reduces shrinkage and peeling. That is always an issue during installation and can leave the person feeling deflated. VViViD says no more of that!
Do you hate it when your end result has orange peel effect? When you use VViViD+ headlight tints, it reduces the orange peel effect, leaving you with a smooth finish. On top of that, you get a higher gloss finish which will make your vehicle look stunning.
Three Cons of VViViD+ Light Smoke Air-tint Headlight Tints
An issue that customers have had with VViViD+ Light Smoke Air-tint Headlight Tints is that it needs heat to stick. A lot of times, the tint did not stick and kept falling off. Even when customers used heat, the tint either would rip or crack and if you used too much heat, it was ruined.
If you are doing the installation by yourself, then proceed with caution as this tint is not easy to install. Even customers that have done installations in the past have had trouble with this headlight tint. For the best result, we recommend going to a professional or you might have wrinkles and cracks as a result.
Lastly, a common complaint about this tint has been its inability to stay on curves. If your vehicle has contours, then this tint is not a great option as it does not stay on well. Even when customers used heat, it still wouldn’t stay put. Unless your car is mostly flat and smooth, this isn’t the best option for your vehicle.
Three Pros of Lamin-X Headlight Tints
Lamin-X headlight tints are thick film that are easy to use and last for a long time. It is a great way to give your vehicle a brand-new look without having to paint your ride. You don’t have to be a professional to install them and with their sticky adhesive, they go right on.
Precut headlight tints are designed to exactly fit the driver and passenger headlight and fog lights. They come in five color options so you can choose the best option for your vehicle. It comes in clear, two shades of tint, yellow, and blue.
The great thing about Lamin-X is that it a thick film that comes with both headlights and fog lights. You can select different headlights and fog lights when checking out! All you have to do is select the year, make, and model and you are taken to the product page. Simple and easy without having you go all over the website to find exactly what you need!
Three Cons of Lamin-X Headlight Tints
The Lamin-X does have some flaws. Customers have complained about the precut tints not always fitting right. If you do want to stretch the film, use heat carefully or it may stretch too much and rip as a result.
Besides not fitting right all the time, another flaw is that is struggles with contours. Like a lot of brands, contours are much more difficult and not every film is conformable. Use heat to make it stick if you do have a problem with it.
Lamin-X is thicker than your average headlight film. That makes it harder to cut the precut film. It is manageable but you have to be careful because you can mess up and cut the wrong part when cutting the precuts out.
Three Pros of Rtint Headlight Tints

Three Cons of Rtint™ Headlight Tints
Rtint™ doesn’t offer much when it comes to colors. They don’t offer anything besides smoke and blackout. The blackout is pretty dark and may be illegal in some states so do your research before buying. If you don’t have a strong preference for adding a color to your headlight tints, then Rtint is fine, otherwise look elsewhere.
