Should i tint my tail lights on my 08 coupe?

hey guys... you all seem pretty savvy when it comes to this focus stuff.. so heres my question.. i have a 2008 silver ses coupe focus and i want to tint my tail lights.. i have 18" chrome rims, blacked out windows... but i wanted to either paint the red part of my tail lights body color or the whole light (including the chrome trim, which would match my rims).. what are your opinions on going about that? thanks in advance

Those would be mine!

I was originally going to have the whole light tinted, but Chad at UC and I both agreed that they looked better with just the chrome tinted.
