    Haven't tried any of them but LED beats the hell out of HID anytime IMO...

    I just installed the Micro LED Headlight bulbs from VLEDS in my 2015 TRD Sport, and I love them. Here is the link: http://www.vleds.com/

    I think it's all in the bucket isn't it ? Early on ( & still in some places) I'd see these assholes that'd get the brightest HID's not only headlights but fog lights too & they'd do it without the retro kits & just blind the fuck out of everyone , that shit pisses me off...

    Its simple.

    Vehicle headlights engineered with a reflector used to aim a filament?
    It wont handle hid or led characteristics.

    Yeah, fog hids are horrible unless projector

    Ok so (educate me here mr.'jangles) are you saying it's the way HID's/LED's project their light ?...

    Because not all HID's I've seen "scatter" that bright shit, I mean there still bright but not blindingly so... Haven't encountered LED's yet that blind you off the road...(at least I don't think I have)

    Itz because a reflector based housing engineered for a halogen filament cannot properly control the light from an arc or diode.

    ΦV(lm) = P(W) × η(lm/W)


    lumens = watts × (lumens per watt)


    lm = W × (lm/W)

    Yeah, that's what I thought the formula was.......

    haha right, I can't make sense of that chicken scratch...been too long since I've used algebric/physics type formulas & I'll be honest , I'd be happy if all HID's & even LED's disappeared from the highways, BUT !! Off road I love'm nothing gives stadium type lighting like a 48" or bigger lightbar...

    Offroad = Good

    On road = Bad
