use quality bulbs and you shouldn't have a problem...

and as with any headlight bulb installation, be sure that during your install, everything is securely/tightly plugged-in... if it's not, you run a risk of shorting a fuse or worse, frying the connectors if water/any moisture should get between the connectors.
