It is almost always a bad idea to just bump up the size of a fuse and replace a relay. The fuse protects the wiring, not the lights. If you pull too much current through the wires, they can (and will) burn up, as in fire under the dash.
It takes about an hour to splice in to the factory wiring right at the bumper and put a relay in there, then run a fused wire from the battery to the relay to power the lights. You could spend another 30 minutes and put a connector on your wiring so that it just plugs in where one the old fog light bulbs were. Connectors are cheap on the internet and this way you aren't even crimping splices into any factory wiring.
