Default LED'*???

Ok I need to know....everyone probably has a summit catalog or jc whitney sitting around...right??? If you don't you'll probably know what I'm talkin bout. Flip to the sport compact section and look at the LED bulbs. ARE THESE LEGAL or NOT??? I've been told both ways. I just wanted to see what they look like in my tails because that spinning action would be pretty cool since my tails are freakin bright and my turn signal bulbs don't work right anyway!! help me out!

I know that we've had some discussion LED'* in the past. Some like 'em, most do not. Look at this thread and you'll get Zzzekes opinion.

If your lights are bright now, be prepared for a big dissapointment with most LED'*. You'll also need to change to a thermal flasher or add resistance to the socket that contains the LED'*. As far as legality goes, just don't cross the New Jersey state line. I can't speak for the other 49 states or our friends up in Canada.
