i bought a set of fog lights that came with 35W bulbs that are pretty weak....16gauge wiring i believe......

what would happen if i swap 55W bulbs in? would i probably melt the plastic housing or fry the wiring?

you will burn up the wireing harness for the fog lights, search E-bay for Blazertech 3200 lights, they come with new housings, upgraded wires, fuse, and relay to work with the stock fog light switch but give you the correct wiring for the wattage of bulb you want.

I have Silverstar H3 bulbs in my Blazertech 3200 fog light housings and they are stupid bright, they make the original Blazertech H3 bulb look like a stock fog light bulb.

he has a malibu, and no it wont burn them up. i had 55 watts in my stock 27 watt malibu fogs and they were fine, no melted housings or wires.

damn, why did they give the malibu the better setup? O'well, give it a shot, if they fry, you have a second option then.
