Thoughts on Flashtech halos???

My guy bought me their RGB halos for xmas. Wanted custom ones made by him given he's pretty skilled in this area, but he found these and took a lot of the guess work out for him. BUT, the halo for the headlight is too small.

High beam fits perfectly, fogs are fine too. He called the company as their pictures show a proper fit. They gave him the run around saying they don't make what's shown anymore on the picture. He waited too long and cannot return them now. The plan currently is to gently heat the strip and see if we can bend it slightly to fit better.

Given the fact that they have terrible support for their product, what are the chances the LEDs won't last very long either? Anyone have long term experience with these?

Re: Thoughts on Flashtech halos???

Yea, if you look closely at the pictures on their website

Jeep Grand Cherokee V.3 Fusion Colorshift halo headlight kit (2005-2007)

Follow the outline of the headlight and look at the halo, they don't match up even in the picture.

With that said, I have the Oracle LED halos and had the SAME problem. Although mine didn't look like they were that bad, they didn't actually fit the design of the headlight. I called Oracle support and they told me it should fit fine. Then I asked for tech support and they sent me a picture of one of their sets they installed........ and what a joke, it was the same way. Even in their installed set the halo ring, was about 1" inch or less away from the actual headlight circle at the bottom. They literally told me to mount them like that.

Frustrated I just installed them like that and moved on with my life. The still look good, and its almost impossible to tell unless you are real close studying them. But for the price that you pay these companies, it should fit correctly.

I have very detailed pictures of my Oracle dilemma and how they fit, over on the "other" forums. I know this site won't let me link to those forums. And I don't have time to post the pictures right now. But if you want them, I can try and get them posted maybe later tomorrow.



I actually tried to buy the flashtech ones. But they had stopped making them. They didn't even have them on their website anymore. They only had the fog light halos. I tried to call flashtech and explained to them that they used to make the halos. I had seen them on THIS forum, and they said all they could do for me is have me send my headlights in and make me a custom set. Thats when I said screw it, and bought the Oracle ones. But now they offer them again, only a few months after I went through all of this. What horrible customer service they must have.'

The good thing about Oracle is the lifetime warranty. Athough NOBODY wants to rip their headlights apart for a second time
