Need recommendation on LED reverse lights.

I replaced my reverse lights with LEDs when I got my car, but have never been satisfied with the light output during the daytime. Any recommendations on some really bright LEDs that can be seen in the daylight? Please don't say Raxiom cause I think they're overpriced.

You need reverse lights that can be seen, or can be used to see?

I'm not sure what the bulb number is but generally a similar bulb with the surface mount LEDs all over will be as bright as you can go without something custom.

I want them to be seen during daylight. There are so many different style LEDs for the same bulb number that I don't know what would be best.

I don't think there will be a whole lot of options. If Im remembering correctly there really isn't much room for a bulb.

I believe it's 921 but I've seend some people use 194 bulbs. From what I've read, the standard 194 is a higher wattage but I don't know if a 194 LED bulb would be brighter than a 921.

Just get a loud exhaust, they won't need to see you to know you are there (;

I will. I'm gonna replace one side and compare to what I have now. By the looks of these, they should be a lot brighter than what I currently have.

Crap, just saw this. Hope you didn't order them! I ordered the same style hoping to replace my fog lights with them. Same LED, different connector. It basically lit the lens enough to tell they were on but put out no light whatsoever. It may have been that they don't work well in a projector lens, but mine were not worth the price.

Finally got the first set installed. These are much brighter than what I had. Ordered the second set. Here are some daytime pics. New bulbs are installed in the driver side housing. Hope you guys can see the difference in the pics.
