clear corners with red bulbs???

im getting some clear corners but i hate that yellowish look that the lights give off......

is it legal to put in a red bulb instead of a yellow one????

i mean, on other cars they use their brake lights AS their rear turn signals so i figure its probably not a big deal.....

i figure the cops here either wont notice or wont care.......
but i want to be sure.... call it CYA....

anywho any comments/info appreciated.......

I guess that depends on where you live. In MI, you can only have white or amber turn signals.

Don't judge by the picture. Especially, by the crappy one. In reality, amber LEDs are as different from the red ones just as any other colour. In California, the cops would probably notice it fairly fast, and I know a few stories when they pulled people over for a set of blue leds on the hood or reddish ones in the grill.
