Default Fog Light Wires

Ok, so for christmas I got these new fog lights...or driving lights. Not sure which yet, because the box and the manual and the item numbers all contradict themselves. Anyway, I think they are driving lights because they do not have painted tips (the bulbs).

Question is, what is the wattage of the stock fog light beams? I want to use the stock wiring that is already in place instead of running new wire, and I want to know if the stock wires can handle the new bulbs.

They both call for a 15 amp fuse, is that all that really matters?

Stock was 37W. I upgraded to 55W with factory wires. No problems. When one of them went out, I put in 100W H3'*. The wires don't even get warm, and I haven't popped a fuse.

The bulbs that i took out of my fogs were 27 watts, so far I haven't had any trouble with my new 55 watters.
