Light Up Your Wheels With LED Lights

Apr 16, 2008
Wheel well LED lights emit a illuminating glow from the wheel wells of your truck or car, making them stand out and get noticed. There are several manufacturers of LED lights, and these include Streetglow, PlasmaGlow, and Varad, among others. The colors that are available are numerous, including blue, purple, green, pink, and almost every other color of the rainbow. These lights come in single colors and in multicolor and changing color models as well. There is even one model that boasts 2.1 million colors as the LED lights cycle through their entire color spectrum on a regular basis. If you choose a model that has the ability to change colors, make sure you still have the option to set it on a single color as well, so that you can switch between the two modes as needed.

The laws vary regarding LED lights, with some areas allowing them, some areas restricting their use, and some areas completely banning this light accessory on your vehicle.

Municipalities, cities, and states all have the right to set their own laws regarding these matters, so the law can be completely different in cities that are only fifteen or twenty miles apart. Some places only ban specific colors, like red and blue, with the reasoning that the LED lights could cause confusion, because most public vehicles like ambulances, police cars, and fire trucks use these colors. Other places have restricted the use of changing colors and colors that strobe or pulse, with the reason that these devices can cause a distraction, making other drivers concentrate less on driving, which can lead to accidents. Some areas restrict the exact location these lights can be placed on the vehicle, limiting them to specific areas but not others.

It is a wise move to contact your local authorities, like the police department or city hall, to find out what the specific law is in your area. Otherwise, that great light kit could cost you significantly more in tickets and legal costs.

Wheel well LED light kits can vary in price, depending on the brand name as well as the model. Normally, for a couple hundred dollars you can get a top name brand and multiple colors in a light kit. These lights are very easy to install and come with very detailed easy to follow instructions. Each kit normally includes a flexible light bar for each of your 4 wheel wells.

These normally mount at the top of your wheel well, cascading a soft glow of color over your entire wheel well area and tire. The light bars connect to a standard 12 volt power source, usually your vehicle battery, and there is no special knowledge or experience needed to install them. The installation process may take quite a bit of time, especially if this is your first installation attempt with wheel well lights. Some people may not be comfortable in attempting this installation process, and if that is the case, then any car accessory dealer can install the lights for you at a reasonable cost.

Wheel well LED lights can be a great way to make your car stand out and become the center of attention. With the soft glow illuminating the wheel wells and tires of your car, every eye will be drawn to it. Some models allow the lights to change, pulse, strobe, and blink, making your vehicle a driving light show. These lights are great to use on a car that you drive every day, as well as a car that is shown in auto shows for competition. These lights can greatly improve the customized look of your automobile. These LED lights can be used alone, or with numerous other lighting and automotive accessories in a mix and match style, to give your car that unique, one of a kind look. These lights are fabulous ways to make the look of your car match your personality.
