Silver Stars... tail light bulbs?

Howdy all, I just picked up a pair of Silver Stars head light bulbs for my 05. And I love how they light up the road. They are alot whiter than the stock bulbs. I also saw that there are Siver Stars tail light bulbs. Has any one used these bulbs? And if so what did you think about them? Are they brighter than stock or about the same as the stock bulbs? They cost alot more than the standard bulbs, so are they worth it? All opinions welcome.
Thanks all......

I have the silverstars in my turn signals and the look cooler and a little brighter. I bought them for the blue hue, to get rid of the orange color when off but they glow orange when lit up. and they seem brighter than my stockers. The standard silverstar 3157LL should be a nice clear bright and long lasting bulb

They arent silverstar taillight bulbs, just sylvania who makes silverstars. They are in a green package. They are brighter than the stock ones though. I compared a stock one to the sylvania to see if there really was a difference, and there was. I wouldnt bother changing them out though, unless one of your stock bulbs go out. That is what happened to me, so I upgraded.
