The problem with calculating the lumens of HID is that it is not accurate information. If you simply are looking at the "math" in a comparrison - the HID can win over a omperable LED - but put them on the trail and you will find out that a lot of those thousands of lumens that are listedd under HID's go in places you DO NOT want light - like up in the trees and depending on where you mount them - on your Vehicle.
The nice thing about LED's is that it is more USEFUL light - it gets directed WHERE you WANT light - not just every where.
Bottom line is - HID conversions WILL NOT LAST - so just becuase you may be saving a hundred or two dollars NOW, does not mean they are cheaper!!
Spend a little more money now and do it right - rather than coming back to this post after some descent wheeling and having to look up information on LED's again!
