Default Need new bulbs

Ok so I searched for what people recommended and didn't really find the answer I was looking for, so I'll ask myself.

What is a good headlight bulb?

I have silver stars now and they just didn't seem as bright as I thought they would! and now 1 has blown and I wanna try something else.

So what is a few good choices everyone has tried!

The Nokya Artic Blue do not work well in the rain. The Artic Purple are useless in all forms of darkness.

You may want to look for a sale on the SS Ultras.

Or if you have the 9005 high beam bulb and the 9006 low beam bulb just put the high beam light bulb in the low beam side.
