Default 4300k vs. 4500k vs. 5000k

Ok incubus helped me out a lot with projector selection what's best. But I need advice on color. I'm ordering them today as soon I get some good opinions.

Also on a side note. A guy is selling get headlights near me. Would those projectors work in my headlights? Thanks in advance

Between the the three the only variance is a slight color change. 4300k are off white, 4500k slightly whiter and fairly white. But 5000k ate whitest color. Lighting on the road is nearly identical. Lumens would depend more on wattage I would say.

Lights installed. Purchased on the 12th. Arrived on the 21st. Couldn't be happier. 55w 5k in no flashing extra bright. Cutoff looks a bit better. Granted this is on a white garage door and off to the left I'm getting reflection from a fish Tank lol

Nope, the lumens do not depend on wattage, but on color spectrum, and 4300 gives the highest lumens.

Sorry to say it but with that much light above the cut-off you are blinding on coming drivers.
