55 watt HIDs and Tinted Headlights

Anyone running 55 watt HID's with tinted OEM headlight housings? I'm sure someone is, just wanted to be assured that heat and melting the headlight wont be a problem.

i run 55watt on stock headlight housings with no issues. dont see why tinting the headlights would change anything

I get a pretty good deal on them from a friend of mine. It's a totron brand Cree 20" dual row. I can prolly get another one from him if your interested let me know. And all my HID kits are from ddmtuning. I've ordered 15+ sets. But nearing Christmas it will take 2-3 weeks for delivery because they are so busy.
