Default Brighter headlights for 2020 Chevy Silverado

I need some brighter headlights for my truck. Need suggestions on where to get them also. They are going in a 2020 Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton. I leave for work anywhere from midnight to 3am and get home in the dark most days.

I know those LED lights are bright as heck. The folks that run them can see for five miles and I can’t see for five days after passing them.

Maybe you need glasses?

Factory headlights are better than they've ever been...blinding the people coming toward you is not the answer, imo.

I agree, driving last night I can definitely tell the difference in LED
And how blinding they are, in heavy traffic on a Two lane street
Kinda annoying

The latest super duties are the worst offenders. Then people put leveling kits on them to make it even worse.

I know that when driving at night in my 2020 1500 Silverado, I constantly have people flashing their bright lights at me because they think I have my high beams on. Mine are stock

A good alterative is putting the leds in fog lamps. They are bright and near the road for good coverage.

There is a huge difference in quality of led bulbs. Many only advertise lumens but they suck on beam focus. 80% of the crap on Amazon probably fall in that category. I spent a bit of time researching to find some that had good focus. When I installed them they have a very hard line between bright and not. They can be adjusted/turned inside the fixture to get the correct line. I spent the time with them shining on the garage door to fine tune them. I rarely get an oncoming driver flash. The brand I bought is Hikari. The model I bought isnít made but they have newer models. I find that anything cheaper than $40 is most likely junk that may be bright but will blind oncoming traffic. I replaced bulbs in a 2001, 2002, 2006 and 2011 F150. I really like them. Much better beam and like I said we donít get flashed. I even stood out in street 50 yds from truck and the light line was so distinct that I could stand tall and not be blinded but if I squatted I had to squint. I was ready to return them in an instance if they didnít work but was pleasantly surprised.
