It is best to use Red bulbs behind Red lenses?
This question is asked more than any other with regard to brake lights.
Turns out that Red light passes unfiltered through a Red lens whereas White light must be filtered and therefore loses strength.
You will notice it more at night with Red LED bulbs, the colour is much much richer Red than other vehicles with incandescent bulbs.
This 7443 CK LED bulb gives the usual benefits over an incandescent 7443 CK bulb ~ lower wattage and therefore cooler temperature, superior vibration resistance and longer lifespan
Being red, it also shines through a red lens better and so will be a more vivid red than an incandescent bulb.
