Can you put led lights in place of standard tail light bulbs?
I drive a 2011 Nissan Altima sedan 2.5 S and I was wondering if you could put LED lights
in place of the standard bulbs that are in the stock tail light assembly?
Yes you can. LED light bulbs last longer but unless you buy expensive bulbs, they will generally be dimmer. If you replace the turn signal bulbs, plan on installing load resisters to prevent hyper fast blinking.

Thanks a lot for the answer and the source. Is the load resistor something I could install myself?
we could search for a source for an insert or perhaps one of the product lines of the zilliions of choices if you type "LED car lights" at the search- Tenspeed should answer this one....brand new to me too-
The load resister goes from the hot wire to ground on each of the turn signal bulbs. You can get a pair of them on eBay for under $5. You can get the bulbs on eBay too if you look around. -- I have found bulbs sold on sites, got the description and found them on auctions. They even use the same pictures.
yeah but some older model cars don't work real well with them, my camaro didn't work at all with it.
I have never had any car refuse to work with LED's. Sometimes I have had to install a resistor (any flashing or blinking lights), but every application has worked fine. Also....the newer LED's are in many cases, much brighter than stock bulbs!
