Well first off does anyone have them, and are they a noticeable improvement in light output? I always felt our tail lights were a little on the smaller side. We have lots of foggy mornings and I need something to pump out some light.

(clicking on the other tabs in the product description will show you the other lights)


I was looking at some from www.superbrightLEDs.com and can't decide on which version to buy. The spider version looks cool but would it fit enough to open all the way? I wouldn't mind the tower type but I want the spider. Do you think a rear facing spider light assembly would prevent any light from being emitted at an angle?

I've never had the tail light off before so any knowledge passed on would be great. Is the hole even large enough to fit these through?

I had LED taillight bulbs (brake, signal, and reverse) in my old car. They were the old style LEDs though. Werent as bright as I had hoped. The SMD bulbs, in the link you posted, look like theyre gonna be really bright, maybe brighter than the halogens. Im sure the LED bulb would fit since theyre significantly smaller than halogen bulbs. As for the spider though, the inside of the lamp looks tight, it would open but maybe not all the way.

That's what I'm afraid of, not opening all the way.

*Sigh* the spider lights look cooler imo, but I guess I'll go with the tower config so I know it works.

I don't think that rear facing spider light assembly would prevent any light but just to be sure, you may visit AutoMD. You may also ask for a replacement tail light assembly.

The light emitted can still be seen with the spider lights in my sedan. The passenger side one opened all the way, but the driver side was a little blocked by the tail light housing. They do fit, but it depends on the alignment of the star pattern while inside the housing.

After about a week, the LED bulbs started flickering and going out to the point that the effect of the spider bulb was lost.

I believe they have a 30 day warranty, but I didn't keep my packaging and just let it be. I plan to make my own tail lights anyway.

Did you get them from SuperBrightLEDS.com? They have a 1 year replacement policy. I got some license plate lights that were faulty after about 9 months and they sent me a new pair right away. No packaging isn't a problem if you have some sort of email confirmation maybe?
