Brightest White 9007 Bulb

About to put a new set of clear headlights in my truck, without going HID and using a projector style light... What is the brightest 9007 bulb?

I was looking at the sylvania silverstars or maybe even the Philips bulbs.

I don't want a blue tint, I want a bright white.

I ordered a RJM harness, now I need to get bulbs.

Thanks

Re: Brightest White 9007 Bulb

i am running the Philips xtreme vision bulbs in my truck with the oem housings(did the 3m restore kit on them). The light output is crazy compared to the cloudy lenses and silver stars there were in it. i am very happy with the philips bulbs. ordered a RJM harness about a week ago, don't have it in yet. looking forward to getting that in though!


side note, how long did it take for you to get your RJM harness shipped?

Re: Brightest White 9007 Bulb

Before I went hid/projector I was running 80/100 watt Hella bulbs with a home made harness. Brightest headlights I've seen that where regular bulbs.

I use the 100/130w ones off ebay with the 5000k temp (color) and they work awesome. $12.99 a pair for my 02 and they carry them for everything. There from a wholesale place in cali. Ive been running the same ones for 3 years now with no burned out ones yet. Spare set on hand anyway.

Re: Brightest White 9007 Bulb

There is a mod that adds a relay and powers the lights more direct from the battery. How much does this help?

Signature file limitations keep me from sharing more information. Follow this link to find my threads: D60 RSK install, Air vent cleaning, etc.

Re: Brightest White 9007 Bulb

The relay harness delivers higher voltage to the bulbs (makes them brighter) and saves wear and tear on the headlight switch contacts.

SilverStar Ultras last longer the the standard SilverStars. The standard SilverStars were lasting me about 1500 hours. The Ultras last quite a bit longer. They both have a slight blueish tint to them (between super white and blue) but do not produce glare. I used them with a set of clear housings.
