I run PIAA super white bulbs with 9005 in the fog lights. 9005 will fit with a very slight modification and they are very bright. 100% street legal too. :clap:What's the brightest easy-to-find and legal headlight I can buy for my '08 taco?
Wow,u know what you're talking about.I'm a Theatrical Lighting Designer and I can tell you there isn't really a true answer to that. It depends on a ton of factors. If you're talking lumens then Sylvania Silverstars are pretty bright and easily obtainable. Color Temperature matters a lot too...some people are more or less sensitive to higher color temperatures. Most people can't see as well with the higher color temperature lamps because they aren't used to them. It matter more then lumens most likely as pretty much all lamps you will find are the DOT legal 55w/65w variety and they will all put out pretty much equal lumens. We live in a low color temperature world and our eyes are used to the 1500°K to 6000°K color temperature because that is the temperature range of the sun and most indoor incandescent lighting. Our eyes have become developed to pick up lower color temperatures more readily. You wont be able to see as well with color temperatures brighter then 7000°K no matter how many lumens they put out. Also the Kelvin rating has nothing to do with brightness just FYI. I personally like to stay in the 6000°K range and I would suggest anyone else do that same. Grab some Sylvania Silverstars in the 6000°K range and you will be all set. They are great lamps!
The only Silverstars worth getting are the Osrams. Euro spec, not the POS bling ones they sell here under the Slyvania brand. H4s drop right in.Wow,u know what you're talking about.
If I did get the Silverstars, do I need to get different fog lamps to match? If si, what should I get?
And that's you're opinion. Mine differs as I've been running the Silverstars in all my vehicles. For ease of picking them up and how excellent they are when driving, I don't see anything wrong with them. A lot of people run these, but don't always speak up. And yes, I've seen the article by the guy selling those lights. What he said in his sales pitch to sell more of his bulbs isn't accurate. In fact, if you read closely you'll see he contradicts himself.The only Silverstars worth getting are the Osrams. Euro spec, not the POS bling ones they sell here under the Slyvania brand.

Anything from Osram is really good!These are the brightest IMO the Osram NightBreaker Ultra High Output +90 or the Halogen Infrared Reflecting (HIR) bulbs.
Check these out they are the brightest other than H.I.D's.
PIAA's and others are just a big names but just as bright as most; the two bulbs I listed are brighter
Sylvania Silverstars:thumbdown suck!

racer1x - Would love to see the contrast between the super white and the plasma. Do you have a pic looking out the windshield at night?X2
I have the PIAA super white H4 headlights an the PIAA 9005 super plasma fogs and they are very bright and DOT approved.
I love them and would highly recommend them.
Your truck is lifted. Did you re-aim your headlights after the lift? With extra hight, it is the same as driving with high-beams on. I'd flash you too, with aftermarket high-beams .I got some 5900k HIPRO bulbs that I got off ebay and they are bright as hell. I get people flashing their lights at me ALL the time and people that are in smaller cars that are stopped at a red light in front of me flipping me off ALL THE TIME. I am kinda over it and I am thinking about going back to stock. They lit up the road a lot better than these bright blue bulbs, or I am thinking about getting hid's but wouldn't those be annoying like the ebay lights?
Yes they are both pointed down. I pointed them down as far as they can go. ohhh well, they look good.Your truck is lifted. Did you re-aim your headlights after the lift? With extra hight, it is the same as driving with high-beams on. I'd flash you too, with aftermarket high-beams .
