Tail lights (tail lamps) are a set of lightings that are installed in the corners of both of the rear end of your vehicle. They are required to produce only red lights as primary lightings to alert other road users to know your next move. Every time a driver steps on their brake, the tail lights will produce an even brighter light different from the dim tail lights. This will warn the driver behind that they should slow down as well. In addition right and left tail lights blink whenever you turn on your turn signal to notify other drivers that you will be switching lanes or making turns. Through this process, people are warned and can move accordingly to avoid accidents.

Like headlights, tail lights play an important role while driving. We are able to anticipate another drivers’ next move through the blinking of their vehicles. As much as they are important for driving safety experience, aftermarket tail lights can also give a unique look to your ride unlike the factory tail lights that are provided. Here at K2 Motor, we offer a wide range of custom tail lights with different designs and styles. We do this to provide you with a wide selection to choose from in order to help you give your vehicle a personalized look. Since K2 Motor knows the importance of tail lights, all of our parts are DOT and SAE approved. Please continue to read this buyer’s guide and you will be assured to have all of your questions answered in regards to our renowned tail lights.

There are always ways to upgrade the look of your vehicle. This can be achieved through the use of LED tail lights (LED tail lamps). LED tail lights are known to last longer than regular filament bulbs. This is because LEDs do not heat up as much when compared to filament or tungsten fiber bulbs. Since they do not heat up as much, energy is not wasted. This allows the light to shine brighter, which produces a sufficient amount of light over a longer period of time.  Not only that, you have a wide range of design patterns with various format, colors and styles to choose from.

“Euro style” tail lights allow you to add a more customized look to your vehicle. Aftermarket "Euro Style" tail lights provide various types of housing and lenses in that combination which allows you to give your car a unique style. Another popular tail light with in the market is known as “Altezza Style” tail lights. These type of tail lights are named after the 1st generation Lexus IS. A tail lights is considered an “Altezza Style” tail lights if there are separate sockets for lightings within the tail lights which appear with more round and animated features.

Third brake lights (rear brake lights) will provide an additional stop signal to other drivers. Third brake lights are located higher than where the standard tail lights are located on the rear end of your vehicle to act as an “eye-level brake light”. They are usually made up of a row or cluster of LEDs in order to save power and energy. Third brake lights can also be made from single central filament bulbs or neon tubes. Third brake lights are an excellent additional safety measure to take in times when the regular tail lights are blocked by interceding vehicles.

Unlike regular tail lights, sequential tail lights are made up of multiple lights that flash in a horizontal direction simultaneously. This visual effect is intended to blink in the direction of the intended turn or lane change. These types of tail lights are more commonly seen in American cars such as the Ford Mustang. Like all other styles of tail lights, the sequential tail light is another great way to stylize your ride.
