Default LED load resistors

I want to get these, http://www.gorecon.com/product.php?p...hback-LED-Bulb , but i'm confused on what resistor to use. I read on the "led fix" sticky that to fix any issues you need to use a 100 ohm 1 watt load resistor...but if you read the 6th paragraph on that recon page, it says to use a 6 ohm 50 watt resistor... Which one?
And can you just put the resistor in the wires before the bulb? Id rather do that then solder it on the led. Wire is alot cheaper then those leds!

6ohm 50 watt are used for LEDs that flash (brake lights/front markers)

I'm waiting for these. I like them over any other switchbacks because they are type 1. It switches from amber to white when blinking insert of just flashing amber.

And these resistors are what you'd use.

If I had the ambers in my mirrors still I would have got the dual colored frot blinkers too but mine are white in my mirror so I got all white for the frot as well




Those dual color blinkers are nice for people that dot want to push te "illegal" envelope as hard as others
