Default Headlight bulbs

I want to get some new bulbs for my headlights but not sure what to get, i have heard that silverstar bulbs are pretty good. Anybody had experience with silverstar bulbs?

I've heard a lot of good things about silverstars, but I would recommend just getting a set of HIDs. A lot more light for about the same cost.

I bought the Silverstar ultra bright. They are something like 50 dollars for the set

They are really bright and work great on back roads with the high beams on

I've got the Silverstar ultras as well. I really like them, and they do put out a lot more light than the standard bulbs.

i vote silverstars. ive had them for several years and they are awsome. IMO id shy away from those cheapo ebay HID kits. ive read about too many problems from those.

I have silverstars in my other truck, one of the best headlights I have ever had. My low beams were as bright as my high beams, and my high beams became daylight!! Lol They are worth the money. The only reason I haven't put them in this truck is that I'm waiting for my headlights to burn out and give me a reason too lol
