Default Cab light fuse

so I'm almost done wiring in my cab lights, I want to put an inline fuse on it, is a 30AMP sufficient enough? Thanks!

Back when i was wiring up police cars if we had no clue what fuse was needed the best bet is to start small and work your way up. Like start with a 20amp and if its too small and blows just increase the size....25, 30 etc.
Your better off putting too small of a fuse in and having it blow, rather than putting too big of one in and something going wrong, melting the wire insulation and not blowing the fuse because the fuse is too big.
my 2cents: Start with a 20amp and see how it does

Also are they LED or hologen? Heck, 5 or 10amp might be quite sufficent depending on how they are wired.
