Anyone running LED taillight bulbs, i've got a set of tinted tails i want to change to LED's so they will be brighter. Looking for the best, for the cheapest. lol

Autozone has them, make sure you run a load equalizer with them otherwise they won't blink.
They may sell ones now that dont require it, but all the ones I ran in b-sedans needed the equalizer.
An electronic flasher unit might also work.

The thing I notice about those things is that the light seems more concentrated on one spot in the taillight's lens, whereas the old style bulbs illuminate the entire lens...maybe you need to use one of the bulbs that looks like a big wafer?

DON'T DO IT!

Unless, of course, you WANT to get rear-ended?

people will not be able to see your brake lights, like Matt said. Fail.
