Best Choice For High-Beam?

I know a lot of people run an HID in their low's but the effectiveness/functionality of running an HID kit in the high-beam is questionable. So what bulb type or brand do you think is best used in the high-beam?

Re: Best Choice For High-Beam?

I am an idoit - I was thinking low beams and jumped on HID - but i can't change my vote, lol.

I am going to jump on the Silverstar bandwagon as well!

Re: Best Choice For High-Beam?

I run silverstars high and low and rarely use the highs, but I drive in mostly city traffic
