Gen 1 Headlight Projectors Melting Headlight

I have gen 1 headlights and am running silverstar bulbs and the focal point of the projectors is melting the plastic and now there is a circle indent where the focal point is, what could be causing this and how do I go about fixing it

I heard that projectors melt with regular bulbs from the store, you need a certain bulb for them.

I do not know what that bulb is, but there are quiet a few experts here that should.

Try taking a look at your old bulbs and see if you can ID it.
