Default LED Brake Lights

Went 6 pages back and saw nothing so what would be some good bright direct fit LED bulbs for my tailights and rear turning signals? I'm gonna tint my tail lights soon and am gonna need some LED'* to help keep the cops at bay knowing they can see the lights easily.

Oh hey what are some good bright headlights too? Not asking bout the foglights I already saw posts on that

LED'* will actually make your tails look dimmer, as they don't reflect off the tailight housing, unless you get the ones that are made to reflect. LED'* will set off the bulb sensors in your dash and you will have that annoying ding ding ding.

tinting the lights doesn't really dim them like you would think.

SE tailights are different though, the tinting really does seem to dim them.

this is 3 layers in daylight

i dont know if my LEDs were reflecting off the reflectors but mine were FAR brighter than the stock bulbs. they also lit up a lot quicker when u compared it to the third brake light.

but i also dropped like $150 on them, really nice though =)
