Wiring Angel Eyes to the corner lights.....is this possible?

I am wondering if it's possible to run a set of LED angel eyes to the corner lights so that they are on when the corner lights are on and blink when signaling to turn...anyone know if this will work o.k. and are there any reasons NOT to do this? thanks

Don't do it. You won't have enough power for the angel eyes to work. And i think it would look ghetto IMO

For the LED angel eyes it would work just fine, they don't take much power at all. I seen alot of people that do it.

If you want your angel eyes to be on half-power and if you want your angel eyes to flash with your turn signals...

Joking aside, if you really want them to come on with your parking lights, extend the wire to the back parking lights on the tail lights.

In my experience with LEDS i would not do it and like the other guy said it would look to ghetto, even ricy so if i were you i wouldn't do it. The LEDS would go out on you also IMO. Plus taping into stock wires is not cool try to keep it clean.
