Hella 550 driving lamps

Can the 100W H3 bulbs be used in the Hella 550 driving lamps?

OK, thanks guys. That's interesting--I changed out the bulbs in my Hella H4 headlamps and cracked the glass in those, too. I assumed it was from a rock on the trail in Idaho but now I'm wondering if it was the heat.
