I am looking to replace my stock headlights with LED headlights but I cannot find the right kind that fit the H11b socket.
My car has 227000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Normally, yourmechanic would not speak to modifying vehicles, but my other half and myself had a 2012 Forte SX 5 door which I did some modifications on, now have a 2016 Forte5 EX ans well as a Sonata Sport 2.0T Limited. Hyundai and Kia are the same company basically. Not knowing which model Kia you have, I would still recommend staying away from LED headlight conversion bulbs. They seem to cast a lot of light close to the front of the car, but ultimate lighting down the road, is not that great as the stock headlight housings are not designed for them - reflector and lens. You are not going to see the type of brightness and pattern seen in newer vehicles equipped with LED headlights. I tried them with the 2012 Forte and was very disappointed. I wound up buying a set of projector-style headlights (halos and led trim line) and installed a HID conversion kit in them. MUCH better than the LEDs and was not disappointed. The 2016 Forte5 has projector-style headlights from the factory but no HID lighting. I installed the same HID conversion kit in this one and am very pleased. Otherwise, to get better lighting without spending a lot, you can simply get upgraded halogen bulbs. You can easily convert the bulb sockets inside the headlights to H11 bulbs, which are more common and have more upgrade choices. Do a search online for "H11b to H11 conversion harness". They’re inexpensive and easy to do.
