I would not change wattage from factory recommended. I have seen reflectors discolored from excess heat over time and worst case, burn marks to actual melting of lenses from excess heat. It's not worth it.
What I have seen a lot of is poorly aimed headlights. A careful adjustment of the vertical, raising it a half turn at a time until the high beam just lights the road, on the verge of being too high, has proven to be good for me. It brings the low beam in just right, not too high or so high that it was bothersome to other drivers. A good indication of that problem is if you are lighting the backs of people's heads in front of you or shining brightly in their rear view mirrors. If so, lower it a little. JMO, good luck.
