9005 & 9006 HIR Headlight Bulbs
New Genuine Philips 3rd Generation HIR1 (9011) & HIR2 (9012) Bulbs

The Philips HIR1 (9011) and HIR2 (9012) Halogen Infrared Reflective bulbs no longer have the electo-deposited coating that reflects the filament's infrared (heat) back onto the filament, which was originally designed to maintain a greater lumen maintenance throughout its life expectancy. It also resulted hotter filament that produced more light without increased power consumption. The bulbs were designated as 9011 until 1997 when the European renamed the standard to HIR 1 and HIR 2. GE followed 5 months later by submitting a change request to call them HIR1(was 9011) and HIR2(was 9012). Both these Philips OEM bulbs are now being used in new car manufacture, John Deere farming equipment, Caterpillar construction, and almost every snow plow hooked in front of four wheel drives on the east coast.

Testing has shown the HIR1 (was 9011) running 10.8% brighter than the previous Toshiba type with a differently designed and upgraded filament gas mixture which also maintains the lumen maintenance throughout 70% of its life hours.

Toshiba no longer manufactures the HIR type and these are the only OEM replacements available and BOTH bulbs are second to none for those wishing to modify and upgrade existing 9005 and 9006 type lamps.

The mechanical dimensions of the bulb are all virtually identical to the 9005 and 9006 bulbs. Bulb tabs must be trimmed to fit, instructions included.

9006 Rallye High Watt Bulb
This bulb offers 70 watts of light vs. the stock bulb's 55 watts. High Performance lighting with a lifespan comparable to a good quality standard 9006 bulb. Originally designed to meet demands for rallye racing, this special-service bulb is the highest-output, most efficient 9006 available.

This over wattage bulb is ideal for night-time animal spotting, racing, off-road, farm, and special-service usage. These bulbs are not compatible with most stock wiring. Relays and heavy-gauge wiring are recommended.

H-11 Headlight Bulbs
Osram's newest Night Breaker Ultra High Output +90 Plus bulb puts up to 90% more precision-focused light on the road ahead and up to 114 feet further down the road than standard bulbs, while maintaining the stock 55 watts. The crystal-clear bulb glass in the primary optical zone offers maximum output and the patented blue-tinted peripheral glass gives 10% whiter light without the reduced intensity common to other extra-white bulbs. The ideal bulb for drivers who want to drive with more light for greater safety. DOT and ECE compliant. Made in Germany.

Note: Due to the ultra high light output of these bulbs, they have a shorter lifespan then stock bulbs. This bulb has the best available output from a standard-wattage H-11 bulb and has an accordingly short lifespan (no free lunch). The law of diminishing returns applies here: there is a significant improvement in beam performance when going from a stock bulb to a +90, you pay for this in shorter lifespan…but isn’t your safety worth it?

9006 Fog Lamp Bulbs
We HIGHLY recommend the Narva Contrast+ bulb in fog light applications. The Narva Contrast+ provides the perfect solution in rain, fog and snow conditions. The special coating filters out some of the blue light spectrum allowing better vision in poor conditions. The bulb offers more intense contrast and sharpness of detail. The effect is well known to skiers. The filter is comparable to the use of ski glasses in that it improves contrast and sharpness. DOT and ECE compliant. Made in Germany. This bulb is often referred to as “Selective-Yellow.”

What is Selective-Yellow Light? It's what happens when you subtract blue from the output of a lamp producing white (all colors) light. So, what explains the persistent subjective preference amongst experienced poor-weather drivers for yellow fog lamps, despite decades of white fog lamp prevalence? Selective-yellow light can improve a driver's ability to see in fog or rain or snow, but not because it 'penetrates fog better' or 'reflects less off droplets' as is commonly thought. That effect is known as Rayleigh Scattering, and is why the sky appears blue. However, it occurs only when the droplet size is equal or smaller than the wavelength of the light, which is certainly not the case with ordinary fog, rain or snow. Roadway fog droplets are several orders of magnitude larger than visible light wavelengths—no Rayleigh Scattering.

So, why do selective-yellow fog lamps work better? It's the way the human eye interacts with different colors of light. Blue and violet are very difficult for the human optical system to process correctly. They are the shortest visible wavelengths and tend to focus in front of our eyes' retina, rather than upon it. Blue also is a very difficult color of light to look at if it is at all intense...it stimulates the reaction we call "glare". So, filtering the blue out of the spectrum lightens the optical workload and reduces glare. For more in-depth discussion of the matter, see Bullough & Rea's excellent study on the topic.
