Reverse lights are a specific category of tail light that only lights up when you are in reverse or when you step on the brakes. Tail lights are one of the most important safety components that you vehicle has, as they signal your intentions to other motorists in a very clear and definable way. Nothing is more important than keeping yourself and your family safe on the road, and reverse lights are a key way to do just that.

When your tail lights are damaged, people will not know when you’re signaling to turn, braking or backing up and the potential that someone could hit your vehicle is much higher – meaning you should replace your reverse light bulbs as soon as you find out that they are not working.

The three types of tail lights include: LED tail lights, Altezza lights, and third brake lights. Here are some tips for choosing the best reverse light bulb for your vehicle:

  • LED tail lights: LED tail lights do not heat up as normal tail lights do, so they will last longer. There is no heat energy involved at all, so the reaction makes an incredibly efficient use of the power needed to light up the lights. LED tail lights are also much brighter than other forms of lights on the market today. They also tend to be more expensive.

  • Altezza lights: Altezza lights are generally used in Lexus vehicles. They are not as reaction-effective as LED tail lights, nor as bright, but they have a very defined style.

  • Third brake lights: Third brake lights are positioned much higher than normal tail lights, and often include LED bulbs to help them last longer.

Aftermarket reverse light bulbs will be every bit as effective as standard light bulbs, and can generally be installed quite easily.
