Yellow Fog Lights

Anybody install these? Couldn't find any threads. Do yellow make that significant a difference in inclement weather? Not that I necessarily want Halo's but yellow projectors would be nice I think. (Im gonna have bumper off doing the cut bumper mod anyway.) These are direct replacement however they do not look adjustable like the stock fogs are. SAE/DOT Compliant.

Good idea. I need to replace the fogs sooner or later because the chrome is peeling inside the lense but stock replacement is super inexpensive in comparison

My experience with yellow fogs...

It wont be as a bright as the white OE bulbs, but it illuminates things like signs, etc better. Its hard to describe. As far as being better for inclement weather, your headlights will overpower them anyway.

Fogs on these cars aren't real "fog" lights, they are more there for style. Also, do it once to it right...get the yellow bulb from Hoen or Nokya before slapping on yellow film. It will melt over time, guaranteed.

Are you saying the fog lights on the Commander aren't "real" fog lights ?

They probably are more so than what would be found on some other cars. They seem to be fairly bright, I just don't know how useful they are.

Yellow light has a longer wave length than white. Some thoughts where that because air molecules scatter shorter wave lengths more that perhaps they might be better. But the majority say that the water molecules( fog) are so large that they don't selectively scatter the colors any differently.

The yellow " tinting" or filter over white bulbs then only reduces the available output.

I installed SilverStar Ultra 9005's and I have liked there performance so far. Some members have even installed HID bulbs in place of their OEM fog lights.

^ The longer bulb length would concern me. Im sure the housing can withstand the heat, but it might be blinding to others.

Fog lights by design are not meant to shine up into eye level of opposing drivers eyes. They are designed for a wide beam in the horizontal axis and a very shallow beam in the vertical. The objective is to not shine up into the fog but to shine under it. I ( so far) have never had anyone flash their lights at me thinking my lights might be to bright, or on hi. If properly adjusted with the low vertical cut off they should not be distractive to on coming traffic.
