Hey,

My rear lights are a bit dim. I umm.. need brighter bulbs. Something other than the usual GE or Sylvania bulbs carried at the auto parts stores or walmart.

What do you suggest from experience?

and, the last triple what normal bulbs last, AND THE BEST PART: theres no glow like when you have your turn signal on: *(it lights up, fades off, lights up, fades off.) leds just blink, blink, blink.

So where is a good place to buy them that has a good selection of the different types I may need ?

I had some LED bulbs in my stock tails a while back and well, they looked good a night they were barely visiable during the day. I switched to (almost hate to admit it) apc Zenon bulbs and they are 10 times brighter than stock and leds. i do wish there was a company that made tails like the ones on caddys that would be cool.

Just my .02

yea, their website clearly states that they aren't for getting brighter

LED bulbs are generally not as bright as standard incandescent bulbs, they have many advantages over filament bulbs (longer life, faster on/off times, lower power consumption, more vivid colors) but brightness is not one of them

Some of our bulbs are available with 12, 19, 24 or 30 LEDS, obviously the more LEDs the brighter


so if u wanted brighter ones, then just get the bulb with more LEDS... ;)

uhh.. dude, no need to become offensive. sheesh.


I thought he ment he had something to do with the making of the bulbs, as if he was connected w/ the company because he referred to the bulbs in possessive form. So I restated the Our part to get an explanation for why he said "Our".
