Default Determining forward voltage of LED's

Is there a way to determine forward current on unknown leds?

I ask because i ended up scrapping my custom led build just to much money... So i picked up a beamswork 36" fixture which features 24 x 3 Watt leds.

I see a potential for upgrading the stock fixture to, as it uses no active cooling so chances are the leds are not running full strength which to me implies potential for new drivers which means you could probably make the fixture dimmable

However i would need to find the correct current so i don't burn them out
