    This weekend I want to put my accent lights on my bike and was wondering what type of toggle switch I need not sure of the SPST or SPDT thing. Here is the configuration I'm thinking about:

    On - Engine Bay
    Off - N/A
    On - Wheels (both engine bay and wheels)

    When I hit the switch I want the engine bay lights on, then when I hit it again I want both the engine bay and wheel lights on together.

    What type of toggle switch will I need?

    Clarification, I want to have the engine bay lights on by themselves by using the switch. When I hit the switch again I want the wheel lights on, so I have both the engine bay lights and wheels lights on the same time. Three positions first Off; second position: engine bay lights only; third position both the engine bay lights and wheel lights.
