From what I understand, my truck has Dual-Beam bulb with number 9007. My Back-up lights are 3156's. Please let me know if you need more info.
I'll break it down below:

3000k: Golden yellow *Perfect for snow, rain and fog
4300k: OEM white *The brightest but looks more halogen
5000k: Pure white *No yellow, no blue. Simply white and bright!
6000k: Diamond white: has a small hue of blue but not much; I have this!
8000k: Blue: They call it iceberg blue. Has a tint of blue in it that is visible.
10000k-up: Produces more color and less light. Only good for car shows and nothing else!

I would judge loosely on the fogs though, as my new 3000k bulbs look like this:

Looks nice!

also if i remember right he has 5k which looks like a lot of blue imo so would 4500k be a more of pure white? or is it just camera? does 55w washout the colors?

It is his camera because in person, 5000k is a pure white color with no blue or yellow in it. Also, 55w does wash out the color. So say you got a 55w 8000k; the 55w ballast will wash it out making the light brighter but it's going to look like a 35w 6000k in the end.

The phone's settings aren't usually to bad, but since its pointed against a white wall and the 5000k headlights look white, i'd say its pretty spot on.
My original 3000k bulbs were not color-matched perfectly (one being significantly more green after warm-up) so I returned them at ddm's shop and got these as replacements. They are definitely more orange than the originals, but those had a lot of green to them. Not sure what to think really, and im also not sure what's "correct." debating whether I should return these also...

here's another shot I took last night with the new 3000k bulbs:





Not quite the right color (again 5000k is PURE white) but still should give a decent idea

(thanks btw, not sure if I like it or not though)

Yea I have 5000k, and just take my word for it, they are definitely PURE white.

55w will put out about 20% more brightness onto the road. If you want pure white, 55w 5000k and call it a day
