Default Problems with Headlight bulbs

This is the second time I have had a healight burn out. I have blue Xenon/Krypton bulbs and with a lifetime warranty to replace them have recieved two free. But I have used them dayly for about a month and have no lost a second one. No I did not touch the bulbs with hand.

Do these bulbs brand just plain stink?

And should you ever get ones that are too high, example: 51watt replaced with an 80w or 55w. I used 55w.

Some help please, I tired of changing my bulbs every month, by now Im a pro and get it done in 30 minutes both with leveling and everything.

Which brand has a good rep. StreetGlow, Eaglite, or Max, just some I found.

Some help please.
Thanks

This is not the site where I ordered mine origianlly, but have had good products from MidnightMoose and want to try them.

KingKole,

Can't vouch for longevity since I put my blue lights in about a month ago but only been out at night about 3 times, but here's where I've gotten all my bulbs.

Crerwzin,
Get out at night more often and you will learn to really like those bulbs alot.

I drive at dark twice a day, in the mourning, and at night.

Most of these 'Hype' bulbs are made in Korea and the quality is pretty low.We had to change suppliers on our OptiLux line because the original supplier gave us such problems with bulbs burning out.
A high-wattage bulb is going to die faster than a standard wattage bulb.The higher the wattage, the faster they burn out.That's why we offer a Lifetime Warranty on Standard Wattage OptiLux bulbs, and no warranty on High Wattage.

Jack,
What about the Sylvania SilverStar? They sound pretty good, and the fact that the PT shares manufacturers.

I've heard that the Silverstars are a good quality bulb.Most likely they come out of Osram, which is Sylvania in Germany.

Share manufacturers?

What I ment by share manufacturers, is that the stock bulbs are Sylvania 51w and the SilverStars are Sylvania 55watts. Thats what I ment.

Jack thanks for telling me there German.

I couldn't wait and bought them anyways, the SilverStars. Hope there as good as the say they are. For 50 bucks they better be. 48-72 hours will tell. Should arrive Friday.

I can't settle for averge stock headlights, no way! Not with the clear lens of the PT.
