    Default Lets talk LED bulbs

    I am on Ebay and i am looking at LED bulbs to replace my tail light bulbs. Anyone done this and what is the best choice of bulb since there is a bunch out there?

    The brighter, the better...look for tower bulbs that are marked 5050 or higher. Also, you will need to install the inline resister for every bulb or else things won't work correctly. You'll probably need a new flasher as well.

    From what I'm told, these are about the best LEDs you can get:

    Poke around on that site because you can get a set of 6 if need be.

    Also, you will want red bulbs with your car's red lenses...if you try to use white bulbs, they'll turn pink. Keep it red and you're fine.

    Plasma ones look good.
