I would hook them up to there own switch... The reason being is i wouldn't want them on all the time when i am driving no need for them then.. If ya really want to get in to it your could wire them up in to the dome light so that way when you open the door they will turn on..

Hook 'em into your dome light. That way when you roll up the dimmer switch, they'll come on with the dome lights.
