hella ff500 lights

I installed some driving lights (hella ff50's) on my front bumper with light tabs, set up the wiring so i can swap out the lights with the ff500's if i want, my question is i was thinking of getting some 100w bulbs to replace the 55w in the 500's, what size wiring would i need to run for these? would it melt the housing? and is it alright to mount these on my bumper and it wont interfere with cooling? also if i do this where's a good place to get the 100w bulbs?

I wouldn't even bother with it.
just because you put makeup on the pig, doesn't mean it isn't a pig.
