I just recently bought a 2007 dodge caliber and im looking into getting new LED headlights. Ive been shopping around and i still have some questions. Is there a maximum wattage limit? If so what is it? Im looking at these headlights, would they be compatible with my car? Why or why not?

Brand: CAR ROVER

High and low beams are reverse and cause the radio to have interference and are about the same level brightness and quilts as a cheaper pair on eBay couple years back as I had issue with the above with them and replaced them because the led had short on half the bulb wouldn’t recommend these and debating on returning them

These sound ridiculously high power for LEDs. Ordinarily we caution about CANBUS and compatibility. These chinese ones now have such high power consumption that detection will not be an issue. But 300% brighter with no dazzle, really? Adjustable grub screw!

Anyway to answer your question the maximum recommended would be the designed wattage for Halogen about 55W. More and you will be melting plastic connectors and holders.
There is also a minimum usually for LEDs so for example 6w would fool the TIPM into detecting a fault. I would not buy the example given. I would choose something more reputable designed for a CANBUS installation of a similar brightness to the headlight specification.

FIREHAWK all opposite to CAR ROVER. Ratings are 4.9/5, reviews are good, specification is more reasonable, price/quality is 50% higher, CANBUS recommended. So that's a YES.
