Can I use 12V 10W festoon bulbs inside a license plate lamp holder that specifies C5W?

My car has 12V 10W festoon bulbs inside the lamp holder that specifies C5W, but I intend to replace them with LED versions of that value so it doesn't burn the plastic diffuser. I'm just not sure if they're supposed to be using 5W versions or something else.
