5 spoke spider LED pics

I bought a pair of 3157 LED tail lamps a couple months ago and they were pretty crappy. They were dim amd didnt get much brighter when I hit the brakes. About half the LED's started flickering right after I put them in.

So I ordered a pair of spider LED's that expand once you lock them in, they have front and rear LED's and are pretty unique. I just wanted to show a couple pics because these things are bright as hell just witht the parrking lights on, they get three times brighter with the brakes or turn signals on.

I posted a couple of pics if you guys want to see what they look like. They were $29 for the pair with free shipping from eBay. I had someone ask about them already and they've been in for one day.

I just put a bid on some. Thanks. How long did it take to ship them from Hong Kong?

They arrived while I was in Vegas so I figured about 10-11 days total. The auction read up to two weeks for delivery, so they shipped faster then I thought they would.

When you put them in, they may not light up because the LED's are dioded, just flip them 180 degrees in the socket so the polarity is correct. I plugged the first one in and turned on the parking lights.......nothing. Just be sure to test them before you slide the socket back in the light housing because they are a bit snug to get in and out and if the bulb goes in by itself, it will be a bitch to get back out.

Take some pics and post them if you can.

There is a 3 spoke version as well, but they were a lot more money for some reason.

These LEDs are designed to work on a 12V circuit? Or is there a stepdown kit that goes with it?

These bulbs are standard 12 volt and have the same base as a standard 3157, but you will see a much faster blink when you put them in. You have to put a bigger load on the brake light wires for them to blink at the normal rate, but it's super easy to do.

Get a pair of 8 Ohm ceramic resistors (the white block style) from Radio shack and wire them across the turn signal +12v and ground on each side. I forgot to mention this because I had put them in for the forst set of LED bulbs I ordered.

I'll post a pic of the correct ones tomorrow and make a quick diagram of how to wire them in.
