Clearance light bulbs

Hello, I have my stock clearance lights "smoked" and after doing this with nightshades, they almost look red with the stock bulb due to my truck being red. I bought some led bulbs hoping they would do some change, but you almost can't see the light through them with those. Does anyone have a preferred bulb/brand/color that they use?

These are what I used.

from what I've read on here and over the years, superbrightleds.com are the brightest.

and instead of going with a white/clear bulb, try going with an amber bulb, I think that might bring more color and away from the red tint.

Yes, you need to go with amber led bulbs.

I use V-leds in my smoked cab lights and they are nice and bright: AMBER 4 LED 2 WATT HP FLANK BULBS 194 168 158 | 1 PAIR

These come 2 in a package

Do these only throw light forward?

How's the side light output?

I'd like a light the threw light in at least 3 directions (forward, L side, R side)
