I wouldn't waste my money on those. Blue coating on bulb means less light on the road and if that wattage is for real, then you are going to burn up your wiring.

Honestly, for that price I can't imagine they'd last long and 100 watts is a little overkill in my opinion (if the factory wiring will even handle it).

I got a set with some headlights I got for my 87 4runner and put them in my tacoma headlights, they really aren't that bright, but they are white as opposed to yellowish tint that is stock. I've been running them for about two weeks, probably just going to go back to stock.

I just replaced my bulbs with the Silverstar Ultra's and it was an incredible difference. They were only $39 for the pair (after rebate) and they won't tax your system at all. They are clear and bright and the older I get, the more important that is.

Are these about $40 a pair? I was not looking to spend that much right now, but I wanted to increase my lighting.

now imagine you changed to some Narva Rangepower 50 bulbs instead of Sylvania poop you would think you had HID's in


Silverstar Ultra's (VS) Narva Range Power 50
Both are 60/55w.
The SSU bulb is brand new and the Narva is a couple months old.

17' away trying to get a centered shot.




the bright ones are the Narva bulbs that aren;t 100% bright because they are older/used longer
