Headlight Bulb questions

Which brand bulb would you recommend for our 05s? My stockers are still working well but I may be tinting the headlights and looking into possibly upgrading the bulbs to something more intense, in case the stock bulb does not illuminate enough through the tint. How much stronger are they than stock?

I do not want to go with an HID kit. Just want to upgrade bulbs.

Also, will these match the color of the stock foglights (any blue in them?) to keep things uniform? Not sure I will be changing out the foglight bulbs yet.

Im Running the Piaa's

19618 PIAA H13 9008 Xtreme White Plus 4000k Bulb 85/75W
Got them off Ebay for around $60.00 ... way brighter then stock. Extremely bright. Bright white with a blue tint to them. They ain't cheap but well worth the $ IMHO

I did not know Recon made bulbs?

How would PIAA and Recon compare to Sylvania Silverstar Ultra?

I am not buying for looks of cool blue but rather a bright white that can light well so that when I put the the film tint over the headlights, I can still see decently
