LED's for corner markers

I bought clear turn signals/headlights/corners for my truck and when I install them I'm going to convert to LED bulbs. I've been looking at bulbs at Super Bright LED's and I can't make up my mind about going with the WLED-x5 or the WLED-x6 bulbs. Anybody done this and have any input?


WLED-x5


WLED-x6

I has some of the WLED X-5 leds for my license plate lights and they did not last very long.

Check out this site: Welcome to V-LEDS.COM

They are excellent quality and have great customer service!!!

Here's a video of the dual color turn signal bulbs I got from them:

I've seen that website before, they cost quite a bit more but maybe it's the 'ol "you get what you pay for" again.

ive got a set similar!

they are bright day and night

while my running and head lights are on, my turn signal arrows on my gauge cluster are 1/2 way lit up, when you flip your turn signal on, it blinks faster like the bulb is going out. but the look good

You need to change your flasher unit out for an "Electronic" flasher, then your turn signals will flash at normal speed.
