I've always been a fan of the Silverstar Ultras and I see they make them in the proper sizes for the high and low beam, but they don't seem to make them for the fogs.


High Beam; 9005
Standard; H11
Fogs; 9145

From Sylvania's site.
Available Part Numbers:

9003/H4, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, H7, H11, H13/9008


So what are you guys doing that are switching to the Silverstars?

So these things look blue in the package but they aren't actually a blue light right? Sometimes they go on sale in the 2-packs and I consider it, but I keep thinking a coating will limit light output rather than enhance it.

Osram Nightbreakers are pretty nice bulbs and if you order from Powerbulbs it is free shipping and 15% off all products with coupon code VXR15 which I found on another forum.

Awesome.. Before seeing this I decided to go with the Nightbreaker Plus's so that works out perfect. Gonna order them now.

Any other bulbs worth changing on the truck before I place the order?

Best of luck with those bulbs...I ran them in my old truck and never again. Read the package: Last up to 1 year. I never made it longer than a year with the Silverstars before having to replace one. Some other folks have had good lick however.

I ended up going with the Nightbreakers. Although I had Silverstar Ultras in my Tacoma and loved 'em. They definitely didn't last long. I had to replace them like once a year.

Have used Osram Nightbreaker Plus H11 bulbs previously for over a year without a problem.

Im running the ZXE's in all bulbs, hi/low/fogs, for well over a year now in my Tundra..I think they seem to last longer then the silverstar ultras..I had ultras in my 4runner and yeah had to change them out at least once a year, Ive had the same set of ZXE's in the 4runner for a couple years now..and the ZXE's have no blue tone to them, they are a nice bright true white...

You can get a pair from ebay cheaper than you can buy one locally.

The ones I have purchased had the upc cut out like someone bought them, filed for a rebate then sold them on ebay.
