I currently have four PIAA lights (I believe 510 series) on my roof in the All Terrain Pattern (ATP). They are great lights but I find myself wanting a wider, almost floodlight pattern. The ATP seems just a little too narrow for me. It doesn't look like PIAA really makes a flood light that looks like the 510 series, and I would like to stick with PIA so I could just plug them in and go. So I am wondering if any of you have experience with their flood lights. I am assuming that it is still a white light and would probably have a much wider beam. Do you think they would work OK on the roof? I have never seen any of these on so I don't know what kind of beam they have. Perhaps I could just change out the two outside lights and keep the ATP's in the center?

Thoughts?

Does PIAA even make 520 floods?
Those ATPs work AWESOME as driving lights at headlight level (slaved to the high beam switch). Floods are a better choice for the roof, certainly.

I believe the PIAA 510's are the 4 inch ones (I have some in the bumper) and they are great, but you're right...they are very bright and narrow. I use the 520's on the center bumper (the ION fog) and when I throw them on, it covers a very wide section of the road for me. If these are on your roof, I think you could easily adjust them to spread or like you said, maintain the two centers and replace the two outer with the ION fog. I believe they sell them at a decent price in the 510 version. Just my .02 cents.

Thanks everyone.

So I did some reading on these lights and one thing I forgot about the fog lights is that the light is amber isn't it? Can someone confirm that?

Not sure if I want amber lights on top. I guess I could take a flood light from a different maker and wire up a PIAA plug couldn't I? Has anyone done this? I just don't want to re-wire. Is the PIAA plugs specific to them or is it just a common connector?
