Well changing the bulbs would do nothing... They would still be read

If u look inside the taillights u can see the red plastic that makes us the brake like housing. You would have to cut the lens off the rear housing and physically remove the red to have it all completely clear, I know because I have thought about doing this haha. Then u can paint them black once u have removed the red reflector's and lenses, or just start off with the black tails.

I dont think that would be very smart. They are red for a reason. If someone is driving behind you and just doesnt realize youre braking because red tail lights dont go on, well, you know....

if you sue red LED's you'll get the same lighting effect, color wise as with the stock. it will just look clear as LED's don't give off color unless used.

like they said, get all LEDs.
but i also suggest getting 06 tails (which u already have so that'll be easier hehe), remove the red layer, tape/mask the circle cutouts then lightly smoke spray the clear cover a bit, (just lightly, not dark at all)
then it'll look pretty damn nice
