Lightbulb LEDS for Tails

So, I should be getting my tails anyday now but im curious if i should change the stock bulbs to LEDS - i already received the led reverse lights i ordered last week. does anyone have any ideas for the other two bulbs. The last thing i want is for anything to warp... Keep in mind i have an 05 so i would really like something i can just plug in and use. Thanks for the help

Also links would be a plus

Re: LEDS for Tails

I'm sure you'll be fine with stock bulbs unless you put cold water on a hot tail.

Re: LEDS for Tails

Re: LEDS for Tails

Also, you could just get the actual full LED tails as seen on theebay. Plus when you get them tinted, they will still shine through really well. As far as resistors, you will need them for the signal bulbs.
