Headlight covers

Alright so im thinking on getting some headlight covers for my truck. The smoked/black ones. Whats everyones opinions on them? My truck is black, so i figured it would look nice. What you think? They arent too expensive, only like 50 dollars. Think i should get them?

you can see with them on, it is a bit dimmer, but you can still see fine.

get them and use your fog lights to see by, or install some driving lights.

dude, with a plastic cover like that you do NOT want to be constantly taking off and replacing depending on conditions. You will grow to hate it. Plus the way they attach will wear out quick and you will have to replace them frequently. (that is IF they are easily removable)
If i were you I would invest the money in black lights as above, or leave it alone. But thats just me. Plus I also think they look kinda tacky

I might pass on them then. Maybe go with some clear corners or something. Thanks for the replies.
