100w bulbs in stock fog lights?

I have 05 rubi and was wondering if I could put 100w bulbs in stock fog lights. Has anyone done it and/or have had any problems?

That's nearly double the wattage of the 55 watt bulbs that were there, that'd be pushing it and I don't think I'd try it myself. Moving this to the electrical/electronic forum...

I've done it in an '04 Rubi. Installed them about a year ago and have not had any issues at all.

I did it by grabbing the wrong packs at the store. No problems but no gains either. I'll probably swap them back for 55s soon.

100w Bulbs

I've got Street Glow brand 100 watt bulbs in my '05. Had the same bulbs in my 99 for several years... No problems!

I would at least upgrade the wiring and add a relay. The OEM foglight wiring can barely handle the 55W foglights.
