Need Headlight Help

Looking to update the front lights on this tractor. I understand that the 12 HP Kohler puts out 15 amps. So how would those 55 Watt halogen ones work out? I believe these 2 would take about 9 Amps, then the PTO is another 4 Amps or so.
What do you fella think on this?
I posted a front end picture of the day I brought her home. Light housings are 2 X 4" each.

I think the good old fashioned round ones were 20-35 watts each and they actually made light. Might look for a 2x4 light in that range instead of maxing your current. Of course, if you're only doing it for a few minutes at a shot, it'll never be a problem IMHO.
Good idea , just can;'t seem to find any rectangular ones lower than 55 watts. Guess have to keep chopping. You are right in not maxxing out the stator. Don't want to chop up that nice front end.
All the best
