    I have the JDM AStar mentioned and they are great--much brighter than the stock bulbs. Couldn't be happier.

    I got my brother and dad (Tacoma and 4Runner) the Flash wolves for Christmas. I didn't get to see them at night but the difference against the halogens was huge.

    Well these definitely are more crisp than my previous LED's. I can tell a big difference tonight. Here are pictures of previous led on left vs new on right. Also are pictures from dusk and night. Garage pictures all taken from top of tailgate (up) from my iPhone 6S horizontally.

    New is on right. If you zoom the image a bit you see the different light output. Left has a slighter blue hue to it.

    I'm pleased! I didn't look at my review camera but I know these will provide more visibility on it.

    JDMs seemed brighter believe it or not, so that's what I went with.

    Correct, which was weird - the lower lumen JDMs seemed brighter than the Wolves to the naked eye.

    Speaking of and not to hijack, but I tried putting the FlashWolves into my daughter's RAV4 earlier today. That vehicle is a total PITA to work on (had to change her alternator and a sensor this summer, was not fun) down to changing the tail light bulbs. Lost one of the LEDs in the lens and got it out once with gum on the end of a stick, but wasn't smart enough to recognize defeat and tried to get it back into the fixture only for it to fall out again and get stuck, in a snow storm, when she was late for work! :mad: So I took the the first one out and replaced them both with the stock bulbs, the FlashWolves LED floating around the passenger tail. Will have to set aside a Saturday to disassemble the rear end to get the tail light off and LED out. Ridiculous :annoyed:

    that sucks!. im ready to order a new pair just dont know what to go with.
    either spend 11.99 or spend 19.99.
    dont kneo why but to me it would seem 45 led': would be brighter than 15.
    also on the one page it shows the 15 leds as the old design with the 45 led being the new

    Right! I was gonna keep both and figured I'd slap the other set into my daughters RAV. I think the Wolves are a slightly different hue (6k maybe?) and look more silver than the JDMs, so maybe that's why they appear brighter.
