I have these also and they work fine. Use the white ones. LED's are what everyone uses now. Even the manufactures. incandescent is stone age now. Cops want to see your license plate. The led's are the best way to see them. I used nut certs and installed in the bumper just like RPG does. it is the best way to go. I don't think the rear facing light is necessary but to each their own. I would use Red for brake light if I were to do it. My .02 worth.
