    I've been searching trying to find an answer, but my search skills and bulb lingo is basic at best.
    I just installed the pt413-42191 fog lights on my truck
    Would like to replace the low beam bulb to match the color of the fog lights.
    I think I read that the fog lights come in at about 6500k. Not sure if that's correct.
    Can anyone direct me to what bulb to look at to do this?
    Thanks a lot!

    HID since the light produced acts more similar to halogen than LED does and will work better in the stock halogen housings

    It's easy. If your low beam is an H11, put in an H9. It's much better to be able to see at night and not blind oncoming traffic than it is for the lights to match color.

    It’s a better alternative than LED...

    Yes. They will replace your low beam (and high beam too if you wanted too, but it’s not much of an improvement in high beams).

    I think my biggest takeaway is the danger in the led light not having the ability to adequately provide long distance lighting. The lights appear brighter, immediately in front of you, but what lies ahead is poorly lit.
    Definitely something to consider. Tipping the scale in favor of fit over function, when something as important safety-wise such as visibility is at stake, is where I start to take my foot off the gas.
    I'm gonna have to get back to the other thread from @crashnburn80 to see what the difference really is, now that I have a little better understanding of what's going on.
    Appreciate the information.

    Ok so I just read through @crashnburn80 entire post again and I feel I'm finally starting to grasp the information.
    His review on the hikari's that @Puppypunter shared the link too seems to pretty good.
    The distance projection is better than your typical led it seems, and also seems to provide better output than the stock bulbs at the 42' measurement.
    The hot spot is less than the halogen bulb, but still appears to be providing adequate light at a distance.
    Starting to lean towards the Hikari's.

    Yeah, those and the new Morimotos are pretty much the selection for acceptable LEDs. They bounce in and out of stock on Amazon. If you’re patient, they seem to go on sale every 3-4 months for as low as $45 or so, but usually around $60ish. But if your like me and just want that sweet 6000K, the $30 isn’t that big of a deal :D

    People have good reviews about these.


    Not sure how they would match the fog lights. But be pretty close. 5500 or 6500 temps.

    I have the same fogs as you and going to go this route soon.
