Sylvania vs Wagner

Ive called around to local parts stores for Silverstar Ultra's, no one has them. They all offer Wager True View's. I can get some for $7.20 a peice.

Dont know anything about them, but for that cheap do i just try them?

Also, what size are the fog lights for a 06 Sport. I would like to get those if i do the head lights.

Fog lights for the 06 should be a 9005 bulbs.

I dont know anything about the wagner bulbs, but I'm assuming they wont be much different than stock. If you want a silverstar alternative, I carry visionX bulbs and have been running them on my truck for about 3 weeks now with 0 issues. I had silverstars before and the light is a little bit whiter from these bulbs.

I would go with the VisionX bulbs personally, I doubt the Wagners are anything close to the Silverstar Ultras. And hey your supporting a R/F member too!

Correct. The vision X fog lights are same as the stockers, the only difference is the higher wattage headlights which pull more power, but I have not had any problems with them in 3 weeks of having them.

So you have the higher wattage ones? Did you upgrade your harness?

I have the higher wattage ones. We recommend adding in relays to cop with the extra power draw, there is a diagram link on the website. I haven't done anything with mine and have not had any problems.
