Map light led bulbs

I've looked up what should replace my map lights, but several places I've checked all show a wedge type bulb and mine look nothing like that. The numbers as best I can see on the old map lights are 582. I'very got two for the dome lights and would like to change these out to led while I'm cleaning them up.
What's the correct bulb to use?

According to Rock Auto, it should be a 168 or 194 bulb.

It's not one of those though. These have a wire loop on both ends.

Found them in the LMC catalog, part #47-0205.
They list them as a reading light.

The replacements DO have wire loops. I just installed red LED's in my jeep.
