Well if you want to run them on the street then 55w or less, the real concern is getting hot to melt the grille I would say. More then 55w gets pretty hot.

7" round Eurolite TF2080 with blue halo ring...upgraded with H3 Silverstars to 100W :)

with my old lights, the back of the grill melted not the whole thing. you can't tell it's melted unless i take the grill off and show you or point it out, these new lights dont even touch the grill either so it's all good

You can either make some mounts for them or drill into the header panel on top or bottom and bolt them to those holes.
