replace high beam bulbs?
i just noticed that there's a bubble within the glass of my highbeam bulbs. i'm assuming it was from the time i had to use my high beams so much when i took a back road home because i noticed they were never there before then. anyway, my friend says not too worry about it and just leave them alone. what do you guys think? replace them or leave them as he says? thx

oh yeah, they were 9005 130 watt super whites

130watt was the usage or the output ?

Our cars should only have 65 watt consuming/usage installed for 9005 high-beams
(with about 30watt tolerance at the most)

...

but if you are talking about 130watt OUTPUT, then you are just fine and there is nothing to worry about thumbsup

also - if you are talking about the actual bulb having a "nipple" on the tip of it - thats how they are made... check your stock bulbs and you will see the same thumbsup
