Red lens, red LED. White won't shine through the red lens very well.

Please don't try putting something weird like green or purple in there :P

You can switch the color of the LED tail lights with control , that's how it works

Switchbacks have little purpose when there's a red film in the way. Get red or white, both will be red after the film (though the white might be a slightly brighter shade of red).

You will lose output using White LED. Concerning LEDs, put the matching color LED behind the lens.

Red LED behind Red Lens.
Amber LED behind Amber Lens.
