So you bought the white LED bulbs for the brake lights? Shouldn't red LED for the brake lights give a better result?

Red LEDs will give a much brighter red colour than white. Since white light is made up of multiple colours, the red housing will filter out all but the red colour, so you would not be seeing the maximum light output of the LED. With a red LED, there is no additional colour for the housing to filter out, so the full output of the LED is visible.
