Default Are These Platinum Smoke or Crystal Clear EZK Lights?

I recently attempted to trade for a set of black LED tail lights but the person backed out and sent me the Platinum Smoke I had ordered for him....I've installed them and just wondering if I actually recieved Crystal Clear or if these are the Platinum Smoke? Any feedback would be appreciated and sample images would help.

Those look like chrome/clear to me... From this pics it's kind of hard to tell...are the lenses smoked/tinted at all? If not, then you got the clear/chrome ones.

I haven't heard from Max2DaMax yet but here are some more images at different angles and lighting...Seems to make a bit of a difference. If anyone else has the platinum smoke please post a pic or two for comparison. Either way it appears to me that there is minimal difference between the clear and smoke.

Especially on black w/black wheels. They might possibly go on silver like my car but really if I was going to buy it would be the ruby red.

He definitely needs more smoke on there

Yeah, I am not feeling them either.....It was an attempted trade gone south when the person backed out on sending me his black tails so I was stuck with these. They are an improvement over stock but when you get something in your mind that you want and it doesn't happen it is hard to get over.....looks like I may have to shell out another $259!!!!!!!!!!

For sure, well you still got your stocks right? Put them back on, these you just bought are like brand new, I bet you could still sell them and re-coupe some of your $$.

I had those for one day and sold them. They look like the clear/chrome ones. You won't notice any smoke. But.... I bet you could tint them a little. Make them a real smoke color.

Sell or tint it will be I guess. Hopefully they can get stock of the black sooner rather than later. Thanks for the input!
