i have an optima red top in my truck (holly shit was it expensive) but a lot of people on my truck message board hate optima and have a lot of horror stories about the battery's swelling, making noise, and failing. mine has problems on cold starts, it resets the radio and stuff, i never had that problem with even the stock battery. most of the people with problems with the battery's are people who do not drive their truck every day.

the consensus on that forum is that odyssey battery's are the top dog right now.

Why would you want an optima?? From my understanding people use those for loud ass systems, is there another reason for using it??

red tops are for hotrods. high horsepower cars that need good quality battery's for bigger motors that are hard to turn over,
and have upgraded ignition components.

yellow tops are for systems and are supposed to be isolated to run the system only if i remember correct. blue tops are deep cycle for marine apps.

I've never had a problem with the optimas I have a yellow top in my caprice and monte carlo and my friend has a blue top in his trunk for his sounds and air ride and he hasn't had any problems either.I have a brand new red top in the garage thinking about putting it in my 300
