    I have a pair of newly installed Hella 500FF's on an Aries bull bar that I've aimed such that the beams fall in the gap between the high and low beams. Is this correct???

    Where ever you want, but correst would be to aim the hot spots at the same height and seperation as they are mounted on the truck... on a flat wall, parked level... ~20 feet back.

    Driving (Euro) beams should supplement or replace what your stock lights illuminate, on high beam. Mount them in the same level as your head lights, or close.

    Fog (cornering) lights are for up close, and low illumination... they spread the light wide and that makes them great for cornering. Mount them low, but not where they will get broken.

    Pencil (Spot) beams are for long, straight, out-there illumination for high speed driving or to see the furthest in open terrain. Mount them high as possible, but glare shields are available if they are above the windshield.
