I think the headlights are rated somewhere between 50-60 watts. Anything significantly more than that and you risk burnin up the wires. In regards to the dome light...i suppose it should be ok. I just upgraded my reverse lights from 27watts, (stock), to 50watts. The wires still look like they should, but keep in mind that the reverse lights aren't on for an extended periods at time
