i thought about doing that to mine. i have a friend with a newer forester so i get to see them up close regularly. i believe i like mine better, though. if i was going to change i would go for the newer "black" ones over the "chrome" ones, though.

I like the newer ones, especially since you have wheels that compliment them.

Honestly the chrome wheel covers and chrome tail lights look terrible. Looks like what people do to early 90's hondas. I prefer the all red 03-05 tails.

I kept thinking that too while staring at it for a few minutes which prompted me to post this thread. The wheel skins on steelies are only for Winter use. I have RSV's for Summer. If that doesn't look well I am going to pull them and mod them to "blacks" I guess

if you like the newer look taillights the reason i would recommend black over chrome is that you have tinted windows and the black bumpers (as i do).

On your Forester color, the chrome tail lights work! From the rear, the chrome brightens up the back & from the side, it works well with the 2 tone & light wheels. :cool:

Put them on & let them grow on you. You can always switch back if you want the stock look. :wink:

I still have the stock ones off my '03 X... :smile:

Hmmmm... not bad, but from that angle, the bright chrome on the tail light draws your eyes to it & might takes away from the overall look. IMO it looked good from the back, but perhaps a bit too bright from the side. :icon_eek:

Now I have to say the '08 Sports black tail light would be the way to go. Sorry... :frown:
