Brightest LEDs

So I'm wanting to replace the LED's on the rear of my car with the brightest ones I could find.

So far I found some 2w red bulbs for the third brake light. And some pretty expensive but decent looking tail lights.

What I'm thinking though is the Reverse lights and License place light.
My reverse lights now are 6000k Regular LEDs, but I'm looking at some 7w or higher LEDs, I just can't decide if i want 5000k or 6000k.
Also same story with the license plate. I want it to be so incredibly bright that people have no choice but to not tailgate me

What do you guys think? Any good sources for High powered LEDs? And what do you think would look better, 5000k or 6000k, I have the 5000k HIDs but my interior and courtesy lights are more blueish....

havent made the plunge yet seeing they are $50 kinda alot for reverse lights lol but I would imagine they would be bright as hell!

Cool I'll check em out. I know v-leds has some pretty good stuff too. They also have these super bright and expensive 3157 bulbs that are adjustable so you can focus the light.

I have 11W ones in my truck similar to those posted above. Keep in mind they are just a 5W LED on the end with 1.5W leds around. The 1.5W LEDS dont really do much other than light the whole housing. The 5W on the end is what you really see.
