    Led turn signals question

    Some websites recommend a pair of load resistors for LED turn signal lights. Will it work or burn out faster if I don't get load resistors?

    I dont think its a matter of burning out faster, the load resistors help with the hyper flashing error.

    Dude 77 is right, the resistors help to slow down the blinking rate like when using anormal incandensent bulb

    If you can get a new flasher relay rather than resistors. Resistors are a last resort to me.

    Please steer in the right direction to finding these if possible

    You are likely better off asking on HID planet for which flasher relay is best. I haven't gotten into that stuff for some time now.

    Relays will be good for the longer run like cfrp said resistors are the last resort.
