What are the Largest Driving Lights I can mount behind my grill?

As the question in the title implies, does anyone know? I thought two large 55 watt lights would work well. I was going to get el cheapo lights because they aren't as powerful as KCs and well, KCs are expensive, so I'd rather get some affordable for me.

I have Hella 7" black magics behind my grille, but I removed the inner shroud and I have a street scenes grille.. I don't think they'd have fit behind the OEM grille without some cutting, and even then they might melt the plastic. I think you should be safe with any 6" light, though.
