Question Highest Lumen H13 bulb?

Ok so I have a 08 f250 with the h13 halogen bulbs, anyway I have been reading allot and apparently the kelvin rating is simply the color and doesn't have allot to do with how well they light up the night. Lumen's seem to be the key to "brightness" so without changing my stock headlights what is the highest lumen/brightest h13 bulb you can get? Will going with a higher wattage destroy my wiring? Before I did this research I replaced my sylvanias with superstars and didn't see much of any difference. So I'm a believer when it come to people saying higher kelvin rating doesn't mean brighter lights. Thanks

You are correct Higher kelvin numbers dont mean more light. Actually the higher you get the less light output you get. For the best color and light output you want to stay right around 5k. As for lumens, did you try the silverstars or silverstar ultra's? Either way they are a slight emprovement over stock, but to really see any sort of great improvement HID is the only way to go. I was in your same boat a year ago, and finally ended up getting the HID's and LOVE THEM!!!

Are the Philis Xtreme just a standard bulb or do they require ballast like HID's?
