Brake & Backup Lights by Size

We offer reliable and best quality LED brake and backup lights that will give you a safer and improved driving experience. Every vehicle that is driven on the road must have taillights that include brake and backup lights. These lights are necessary to tell other motorists behind you when your car will be slowing down, coming to a stop or reversing. The taillights help drivers avoid collisions and make it safer for everyone to drive on the roads. Taillights became mandatory in many parts of the world during the 1990s. It was the same time when commercial cars started being manufactured that could go very fast. We believe that brake and tail lights are absolutely necessary today when motorists can drive up to speeds of 100 mph in the city. Without brake lights, there is no way for drivers to know when the car in front of them is slowing down or coming to a stop. Brake lights give drivers enough time to react to the vehicle in front. They allow drivers to slow down their own vehicle as well in time to avoid collisions.

Components of Tail Lights

The tail lights consist of three main components; night-time tail lights, brake lights and reverse lights. In most cases of modern vehicles, the turn signal indicators are also built into the tail lights. Generally, the brake and reverse tail lights are located on the same globe. They have the same external lens that covers both lights. Depending on the model and make of your vehicle however, it may have unique tail lights with separate globes for brake and backup lights. Tail lights are designed to automatically light up when you turn on your headlights or when your parking brake is applied. The brake lights illuminate when you apply pressure to the brake pedals. For most vehicles, the tail lights are red and the brake lights are a brighter and more luminous shade of red. The backup lights are usually white or yellow.

Why Your Tail Lights Need Replacement

Tail lights can lose their functionality due to a variety of reasons, and you may need to get them replaced. The bulbs for the brakes and backup lights can become dim with time as they get older. The tail light lenses also become cloudy often due to dust particles settling into the microscopic gaps in the plastic lenses. The same thing can happen to reflectors and they can get dim. Last, tail lights can break due to an accident and require replacement.

Options for Upgrading Your Tail Lights

When it comes to tail lights, vehicle owners have several options at their disposal. You can get halogen, HID or LED bulbs for your vehicle’s brake and backup lights. The halogen bulbs are cheaper and require little to no conversion as most vehicles come with a wiring setup for halogen tail lights. You can also upgrade to the more powerful HID bulbs that consume slightly lower power but give out a much brighter output. HID bulbs are not very popular because you don’t need a lot of projection for tail lights. They cost slightly more than halogen bulbs. Since you don’t really need that much power HID are not advised for tail lights. LEDs on the other hand are a different story. LED lights are more reliable, consume very little electricity and brighter than factory installed halogen bulbs. LEDs also turn on very quickly, as soon as you press the brake pedal. Drivers trailing behind can get an extra split second to react. A split second can make a big difference between a near miss and an accident. LED taillights can give your vehicle a distinctive look and style that you won’t get with regular halogen bulbs. LEDs also tend to last much longer, more than 5 times the duration of a regular bulb. If you are looking to upgrade your vehicle’s brake and backup lights to LED, remember that you will need a proper LED conversion kit for the lights to work effectively.
