    you want these
    http://www.suvlights.com/halogen-philips-weathervision.htm
    the yellow doesnt relect off the rain/fog/snow/etc as much as regular white light, and MUCH less than blueish light, making it a hell of a lot easier to see (IMO they let you see a lot better in any type of weather)

    He doesn't want HID's, y0.


    I'd go with the Phillips WeatherVisions...while they don't look all 'JayDeeEmm, y0!!' and frosty white and such, they work...or whatever.

    PIAA makes some bright yellow bulbs.

    I have Silverstars and I can't see anything when it's raining. But in dry conditions, they're wonderful.

    WRONG

    5000 = white
    6000 = aqua
    8000 = blue
    12000 = purple

    :werd: tyc clear housings is what i recomend....


    anything above 6500k is blue as hell. honestly anything 8000k or higher will be shades of dark blue to dark purple and not functional...your kinda just going for the look. the lumens will be higher with the 5500k to 6000k the higher the lumens the brighter the hidz are gonna be

    word i got piaas and one just blew and im pissed and just like someone said abourt the silver stars you cant see dick in the rain or snow but when your on a dark road on a clear night nothing can hide from the light. with stock housings i would go with hids


    the brighter they will seem(out of houising). lumens are to measure the amount of light given off candle power is what is used to measure the intensity of the light at its most focused point(in the housing)
