10 ohm 50 Watts should work fine. Are you sure they're not incorporated in the light assembly?

No where does it say you need resistors. Then again nowhere does it say you don't. Looks like your going to need to call the 1-800 number and talk to a real person if you can. Hope the answering service is not in Bangladesh.
