Higher wattage bulbs for fog lamps 300E/300TE

I'm interested to know if anyone has used the 100 watt bulbs for their fog lamps.

I went to buy some new bulbs. They had 55 watt (OEM) and off-road only 100 watt. Being a curious fellow who drives in the Rocky Mountains in stormy conditions, I opted for the 100 watt bulbs.

They had a little tab of metal that prevented their installation in the hole. This little tab could be easily removed, but I thought that if the manufacturer went to the trouble to add the little tab, it must be for some reason. Either the bulbs would blind oncoming drivers, or the higher wattage would produce heat that would melt something?

Anyone tried it with success?
