Did you put aftermarket bulbs on your Ford F150?

Friday, February 5, 2010 by Tire Rack Team
Aftermarket bulbs increase your margin of safety and enhance the appearance of your vehicle; so if you haven't put them on your F150 yet, you might want to consider the LED Tail Light/Third Brake Light Kit from Hella (shown). The kit includes two tail lights, a cab-mounted stop lamp and a complete set of installation instructions—and installation, of course, is really easy.

In addition, you can add to the kit above with a Grille Kit featuring Halogen or Xenon driving lamps. You can also choose a Blackout Head Lamp Kit.

Is there xenon in your replacement bulbs?

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 by Tire Rack Team
It doesn't take much to switch out a head light bulb, but it takes a lot of science to actually create one. Inside those little replacement bulbs is, among other components, one key element: Halogen.

Halogen bulbs are quite common in today's vehicles. Halogen and other gasses combine to create a constant light output throughout the life of the bulb. It's the Tungsten wire within that creates the need for replacement bulbs. Despite the chemical process initiated by the halogen, the wire burns up and the bulb goes out.

And that's why a variety of replacement bulbs are filled with xenon instead. Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) light bulbs replace the halogen with xenon and the wire with a ballast, ultimately generating a whiter light source. It is, quite possibly, the most advanced replacement bulbs you can find. (Read more.)

Tire Rack carries a number of xenon-filled replacement bulbs from brands like Hella and PIAA. Search by vehicle to determine what fits.

Hella lighting shines on with two new bulbs.

Hella lighting continues to "own the night" with their line of High Performance Headlight Bulbs. Thanks to a blue coating, Hella bulbs produce a whiter, brighter light that increases visibility—and that, in turn, minimizes eye fatigue. We've added two new bulbs to our already extensive inventory of Hella lighting products: H9 (left) and H13 (right) High Performance Bulbs.

They're all about light technology and electronics, and using both to increase driving comfort and safety on the road, the track and the trail.

Hella remains the lighting choice for high performance auxiliary lamp applications, thanks to cutting edge technology—which is distributed throughout their extensive list of replacement bulbs, auxiliary fog lights and driving lights. All in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
