I wonder how these will work as replacement bulbs. The ZR60 bulb?

DDM has great products. i personally love their HID's, lifetime warranty and quality stuff. im not too sure about their LED's. you can give them a call; they also have great customer service
The biggest misnomer about LED bulbs is that they will always be brighter. It's a yes and no answer... When buying these bulbs you have to be aware of the application. For example, the link above shows a bulbs which has a beam pattern that's very one-way directional. It only projects the beam outward. The housing for, say, an OEM brake light or turn signal has a parabolic reflector to direct surrounding light designed for a filament bulb. If that's the bulb you're replacing, you want a bulb that takes advantages of the OEM designed parabolic reflector to maximize brightness and have an LED bulb that looks closer to something like this...
Then you have watts, and LED count, and color to think about it...
Here's something i'm quoting to help as well.
Buy the LEDs in the same color as the colored lens of the light you are installing it in. If the lens is red, buy a red LED.
If the lens is amber, buy an amber LED, etc. If your lens color is clear, buy the LED in the color you wish for the LED to display when lit.
For instance, taillights and brake lights generally use red LEDs even with a clear lens. Clear turn signals would use an amber LED.

I would agree with your assessment. The LEDs do not always show brighter. And you are right on in that some of our lights are the result of reflective surfaces. I have been looking for LEDs that I can use in a couple of applications.

Let me just say NOT all LED's are created equal and usually each application has it's own set of specs.
Directional vs. Spot vs. Flood are all examples in home LED usage if you ever go to a Lowes or Home Depot.
In cars we have to add a few more items into the equation:
c) Bulb housing
d) Type of plastic or glass (clear vs. opaque)
We have over 50 different types of LED's in various specs depending on what we are building for the customer. Rarely do we use the same for both applications. In picture they all look the same but longevity is something people sometimes forget to factor in if you are paying $$$$ in labor to bake open a headlight for example.
