LED headlights
« on: May 28, 2015, 06:51:54 PM »

Hey guys just wanted to drop off some info here for all of you. I bought these http://www.ebay.com/itm/290756683698?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT. I installed them and they work amazing. I have a video that shows the lighting performance.

Nice will need to look into that if you read one of my older posts I had installed HIR lights before with some success.

I always had HIDs.  I got some LEDs about a year ago, and I like them better.  Although the ones I got don't seem to last very long in my minivan.  I got all 6 bombs for the TGP, but I'm not crazy about them.  They are supposedly some new design that is supposed to make the beam closer to halogen focus, but in the rain, they weren't bright enough to see anything.  I will have to try a different design.

I read a little about the HIRs I then watched a few videos on Youtube and wasn't too impressed with the output. If you seen my video I turned off my nightvision for the duration of the drive and you can see pretty good. On the HIR videos they seemed as bright as my highbeams.

  As far as your leds not being bright enough. You do need to read into the lumens and light temps. For example I found some 9006 bulbs that were like $20 but they were only 30 watts at 720lumens and read fog lights only. the ones I have linked are are 3600 lumens and still run 30watts. So if anything see if you can find old receipts and check the numbers.
