On an 89 Ford Bronco with 5.0L, how many amps run through the 2 yellow power wires from the starter relay (engine bay, passenger fender wall) to the ignition switch (top of steering column)?

The wires are 12 gauge. How many amps are running through the 2 yellow power wires?
What amp rating hardware would be a safe bet to use? 10a, 20a, 30a, 40a?
12 gauge wire is for up to 20 amps.
The most Amperage I've ever seen on those wires has been 25, but that was a surge amperage, normal runs around 20 amps.
