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.

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.

Looks Awesome!
They look great on my truck. Easy to install. They should tell you that you need to buy L.E.D. Reverse bulbs though. You can get at most automotive places for under $30. Would recommend to everybody though.
