If you don't need them for auditing records you can delete them. Deleting them won't cause anything to break. The logs keep track of every http request to the server. It is configurable in the IIS Manager. Assuming you are using IIS7: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754631(v=ws.10).aspx

You can also change the roll over interval: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732826(v=ws.10)

Which may be better so you at least have some logging.
