They're the Optilux Angel Eyes 2500 driving lamps. They use H3 55watt bulbs.

I think they came with a 15 amp fuse in the supplied wiring harness/relay/fuse holder.

If you hook the driving light part to your stock wiring you will have no issues. Those are already fuxed and relayed.

15 amps sounds about right. 10 would likely work.

(55*2watts)/12volts = 9.16667 amps

Thanks guys. I've got another question. What would have caused the fuse to blow? The car wasn't on, nor were the lights. I was moving the wire to the switch around to try to route it through the firewall, and it blew. Would it have been too close to something else? Would it be bad to put it near an amplifier power cable?

the electricity could have just arced. Possibilities are endless. If it continues to happen I would start to worry. if this is a one time thing, dont worry about it.

Well, after it blew, I aborted the rerouting of the wires and just put them back. In the future, when I need to get them through the firewall, there'* a tiny hole that the amplifier power cable goes through, but I'm not sure if it would be bad to run them next to it. It'* the only place I can see that they'd possibly fit.

If any of you have installed Angel Eyes, where'd you get them through?

I ran my fog wires down the fender and in through the door accordian

Definely not the best place to do it but I was running out of summer to enjoy all my mods. Where you amp cable is should be fine as long as they are not rubbing on the firewall and therefore rubbing through to expose open wire.
