Question LED Tail Light Bulb Recommendations?

Hey Guys what LED bulbs should I get for my tail bulbs?

I looked at the sticky we have on here, but I'm wondering if it's outdated. (Better and cheaper bulbs out these days)

Too be honest if you don't use cruise go for it, or you might have to install a resistor like I did. Lately I have been thinking about buying a Canbus Error Free led light from ebay to try them out for my wagon. I always have issues with my Cruise not working when either I turn my parking lights or head lights on in my wagon, otherwise day driving cruise control works. As for my sedan I installed resistors and that's what fixed my problem for night time.

Use this to find your bulb your looking for - https://www.osram-americas.com/en-us...s/lrgmain.aspx

Here's some on ebay for an example - http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw...anbus&_sacat=0

Diode dynamics has good quality bulbs. I replaced my sedans and other cars interior bulbs. It's been several years and I have had no problems.

Really, I'm going to have to check this brand out myself. I get tired of buying ebay junk.

Yikes, I want my cruise to work still, I use that fairly often. So worst case scenario, I just have to install resistors i guess... Haha

Or the error free bulbs, which I haven't tried yet, but supposedly they come with resistors in them so you don't have to install the resistors externally from the bulb.

I think connecting a load resistor is worth it if you use these. It's nothing but splicing two wires together for each bulb that you use (red to red, black to black). I find anything sold on eBay that's L.E.D. Fail often, flicker, and the "engineers" that design them were not considering light output and quality. My whole light set up is literally all Sylvania L.E.D.'s and in total I'm using 6 load resistors. I highly recommend the Sylvania bulbs. They are extremely bright and visible in the day and night. Plus, it's Sylvania.

Might try VLEDS:

I swapped my TSX bulbs about 9 years ago and found them here. They offer cutting edge LEDs and seem to be of good quality. While its a small operation, his support is very good.

Just an FYI for those of you who don't want to wire in resistors, as I myself have had issues with cheap resistors failing, you can buy a new flasher relay that doesn't require any specific resistance in order to work. They are about $8 on ebay and you just take out your old relay and plug the new one in. They make them for just about every car and bike out there, and I have been using one in my Goldwing for about 3 years without any issues. I think it's a heck of a lot less hassle than wiring in resistors.
