What kind of bulb did you get? Some bulbs face straight-out and look like a red "dot" in the tail light. Others have LEDs in all directions so they emit more light.

This bulbs, is not good for tail lights...




You want one like this...



See how it has LEDs pointing in more than one direction?

Not all LED's are brighter. Some LED's at 12v only put out around 15 lumens.

Example of high power LED's:
A SSC P4 LED will put out a maximum of 240 lumens but a CREE MCE(4die) LED will have a maximum lumens output of over 800(which is holy shit bright btw).

Think of it this way. Make a PCB the size of the tail light with all CREE XR-E(R5) LED's(say 15), it'll put out roughly 5,550 lumes. A factory halogen H1 bulb only puts out 1000-1100 lumens.

Ultra bright LED "bulbs" have to be made, not bought.

But once you start to get that bright, you run into heat problems(yes, LED's do put off some serious heat). Example, I hade a 800 lumens CREE MCE flashlight that had a maximum running time of 120 mins before it started to do damage to the circuitry.

Question

Hmm, how are the SMD bulbs?

I am looking at :

If they're tail lights, I don't think they'll be too bad. Should work nicely, actually.

my main concern is, how do these lights look durning the day time. they're nice and bright in the dark but what about the day?

i had led turn signals (21 bulb) on my previous car and were hard to see during the day time. and thats that i put white ones to shine through the amber lens and it was still a bit hard to tell that the turn signal was being used.

This is kinda old but I got some all clear tails and have 4 red bulbs LED (of course) and the regular bulbs for reverse, haven't done the blinkers yet waiting for the load EQ to be shipped to but now I don't have running lights anymore, the lights come on when I press the brake but nothing otherwise.

I used some 1157 bulbs off ebay the 360 style not the cluster style.

I had running lights before the led bulbs...

Any help would be appreciated

Have you checked fuses? Have you tried switching back to a halogen bulb? If the issue goes away and you get your running lights back, then it's the LED bulb you're using. If you check fuses or switch back to halogen and still don't have running lights, I'd say you have a short somewhere.

I went back to regular bulbs and they are back so I guess it's the leds, I got 1157s like the first post said. They light up as brake lights just not as running lights.
