Well 55W would have a lot of light output. I am wondering if they might have too much glare? I suppose it depends on where you use them, outside of the city then I would imagine they would be safe. My only reason for not getting 55w was reading that in order to use a 55w kit then you should be running a relay harness to the battery. Reason being is that could be a lot of power when you start them up, not sure how good the stock fog light wiring is. But from the research I have been doing the new ballasts these days are fairly efficient and they don't draw much more power on startup compared to how much they use normally. Older ballasts used to draw a lot of current to start the bulbs, and stock wiring had problems handling it. I am not an electrician or a mechanic so don't quote me. Just relaying the information I was able to find out when doing the research for myself.
