What kind of bulb...?

What kind of bulb gives off a white glow? I am looking to replace my front corner bulbs and front blinkers, but I want th bulbs to glow white. They have a yellowish/gold color to them now. Also, where should I get them?

Thanks,
-Mike

I had wal-mart bought 194s. They are blue, but light up bright white, with a slight blueish tint. They also havce the 3157s that are blue bulbs, but light up VERY bright white. Friends hate it when they brake down and I'm behind them with the4 way flashers on.

I got the chrome covered ones, but they burn amber......to comply with the law. I also have the chrome corner bulbs too.

Careful with the coloured bulbs though......amber is the only "legal" colour. Just don't ask why if you're ever pulled over. LOL

I don't know if clear is legal here, but I have been running them for about 2 years. I got pulled over in FL and the cops never said anything about the lack of yellow, I also got out of the ticket they were gonna give me. I ordered the LED's today. Woowhoo!

looks like your paying it forward evan...evan and i have the exact same bulbs, and you'll be satisfied. the blue covered ones are ok but eventually that lovely blue covering fades and peels....

as far as legal goes, i've had more problems with the blue coated ones than that led ones and plus here, they just dont care that much unless it's obvious it's blue which the leds aren't
