Halogen Upgrades

For my truck the fitments are 9005 and 9006
I have ordered from Hoen in the past and they are great however hoen does not make a standard wattage 9005 bulb

So what are my other options
right know I have looked at KYO and PIAA
the price difference is dramatic betweeb PIAA and KYO and if the KYO's will last I may buy them

any experencies with KYO's

all help is appreciated

TIA

Buy SilverStars if you're not going with HIDs.

We offer the Predator Xenix xenon colored halogen replacement bulbs if that's what you are looking for.

Otherwise we have full HID kits and full headlight replacement kits with projector based xenons if you want to change out your factory halogens.
