Unhappy 9005 Silverstars do not last long

I did the 9005 conversion with the Silverstars a little earlier this year and I already had to replace them When I first got them they were great and they were great for a little while. But recently, I noticed that I couldn't see anything anymore and the cutoff had become lower to the point the beam only went out 15-20 feet in front of the car. So I swapped them out with the stock bulbs and now I can see again. I looked at the Silverstars and they've turned a nasty greyish blue color. I guess the 9005s weren't meant to stay on for long periods of time. So the 9005 conversion isn't a great idea when using tinted bulbs. My advice is to save up for HID, that's what I'm going to do.
