Default Cleared corners legal?

Yeah, I'm clearing my corners, I've got one of them done, then I started wondering if it was legal. They've gotta be amber for a reason...or maybe not? If so, is there an amber bulb that I can replace it with? I really like the look. Thanks.

i tihnk my law the car needs reflectors, amber is just the standard but white is legal for the front, but cleairng the corners removes the reflector, thats why the sell clear ones with a clear reflector, but as long as the inspection people dont catch it itll pass

As long as the bulbs illuminate with orange, they are legal.

So.....a dim white light kinda looks yellowish-orange-ish. We don't have inspections up here, so I'm not worried about that....I'm just worried about some cop havin' a bad day and takin' it out on my cool cleared corners.

as far as i kn0ow, atleast in this area white is legal, however, for safety i use amber, because on sunny days it is very difficult to see white turn signals
