Fiber Optic Tail Lights

Make a Striking Statement Every Time You Stop

Many of the latest high-end luxury cars have tail lights with what appear to be neon tubes. Instead of individual bulbs, these lights have unique bands that emit a neon-like glow. However, these lights have no neon gas, but instead owe their appearance to optical fibers, which can be made of thin strands of glass or plastic. A source of light, usually LED bulbs, is located at the end of the fiber and the light is emitted along the entire length.

Fiber optic tail lights are the very latest in automotive lighting technology, and you’re sure to see them on more and more cars and trucks as the years go by, but you don’t have to buy a new vehicle to get these eye catching lights for your car or truck. Browse our selection and you’ll find fiber optic tail lights in a wide range of styles. Our manufacturers have created many cutting edge tail light designs with fiber optics as the main feature.

We aim to provide our customers with the finest Fiber Optic Tail Lights the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Spyder, Spec-D, IPCW the Fiber Optic Tail Lights we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.

Fiber optic cable will work with virtually any source of illumination, but our tail lights use LED bulbs, so you not only get cutting edge styling and design, you get all the advantages of LEDs too. Fiber optic LED tail lights can increase your driving safety. LED bulbs have a faster rise time than incandescent bulbs, lighting up 0.2 seconds faster. And we all know how fast light travels: as soon as the LED bulb illuminates, so will the fiber optic cable. At 60 mph this extra time can give the driver behind you almost 20 ft. of additional stopping distance, which could be the difference between a safe stop and a collision.

Another benefit you’ll gain from installing a set of fiber optic LED tail lights is reduced maintenance costs. Although their initial price may be a bit more expensive than a set of ordinary replacement lights, besides the great looks that factory lights just can’t match, you’ll more than make up the price difference in the long run because you’ll never have to buy replacement bulbs or go through the hassle of bulb replacement. LED bulbs last 50,000 hours or more, far longer than the lifespan of the average vehicle.

The fragile filament is the Achilles heel of the incandescent bulb and often the cause of bulb failure. The delicate filament is sensitive to vibration and continued and excessive shock can weaken the filament and cause the bulb to fail. LEDs have no filament, they’re semiconductors that emit light when current is applied, and are insensitive to vibration. Optical fiber, glass or plastic, is also much more durable than brittle filaments. Fiber optic LED tail lights will not only provide an unmatched appearance, they’ll be unaffected by the roughest pot hole-strewn roads or toughest off-road terrain.

There is no question that LED and fiber optic tail lights look great. But how well do they work? After all, the primary function of tail lights is to make our vehicles visible and to alert other drivers when we’re stopping and turning. Today, these technologies are making their way into our cars slowly but making a big splash.
When you decide to install LED bulbs into you car, you need to know the right size and select the desired color. Next thing to know is that most vehicles use a Thermal Flasher unit to control their Turn Signals. Most Thermal Flasher units are generally not compatible with LED lights without a resistor installed with them. Why you Ask?
There is an ever increasing range of taillights available, thanks to the rapid development of modern lighting technology and to changes in the legal requirements for automotive lighting. There have never been these many options for taillights, and it has never been easier to create a completely unique lighting signature for a custom vehicle.

2013 Subaru BRZ | Posted by Wesley | (Livermore, CA)

The Spyder Black Style LED tail lights looks 100% better than the stock 2015 BRZ tail lights. It changes the appearance of your BRZ to the point where people take a second look and one individual asked me if my car is the new STI model! The Spyder LED lights are quality built, much brighter than the stock trail lights, therefore increases safety from the rear. Installation took less than 30 mins. Watch the video. It's simply one connection and all the wires match perfectly for the BRZ. Just plug in, set the tail light assembly back in, screw back the four nuts, test and go! WARNING: The plastic pins holding your head liner will be destroyed if you don't use the right tool. The CARiD customer service rep Katie was very professional, cordial, and very friendly. She presented options, offered her opinion, and did not use the typical high pressure sales pitch. PROs: - Outstanding looks and appeal. - Quality built. - Very easy to install. - Brighter, therefore safer than stock tail lights. CONs: - Retail price is steep. Try catching the lights on sale. I did shop around and CARiD was the best price overall. I highly recommend purchasing these LED tail lights from CARiD.
