I got bored today and put on my old set of tinted ssei tail lights. I used to run Jamstrait leds for my running/brake lights. I just put on the right tinted one and changed the leds back to the regular 2057 bulb, while leaving the left one untinted with the leds. The tinted light was brighter!! I remember acg_ssei telling me they weren't a good idea for our cars because the emit the light in a more straight out pattern then all around, and boy was he right. more info on that can be found here http://bonnevilleclub.com/forum/view...&highlight=led
i used 3-4 coats of tint on my tails to cover some dust and delamination. red and yellow are still barely visible in the right light, along with clear reverse lights that were taped off.
but in conclusion, DON'T buy leds for the tail lights. I paid $30 a long time ago and finally smartened up.[/u]
