Auxiliary light alignment?

So I have the 7" Rugged Ridge HID lights installed on my Smittybilt XRC bumper. How do you guys have your auxiliary lights aligned? I'm trying to decide if I want to aim them for maximum visibility on the rail or if I want them pointed more towards the ground like fog lights. My biggest concern is that I shouldn't use them ever on the roads no matter how I have them aligned for the fear of blinding people.

How do you have yours set up?

I'm running two rectangular driving lights mounted in the middle of my bumper. I've got them aimed so that they illuminate the roughly from the center (they don't overlap too much in the center) to the outside edge at about 40 or so feet out. Plus, the bumper I have has the stock fog lights mounted close to the outside edge so with all lights lit (headlights, fog lights and driving lights) I've got almost complete coverage near to far.

On mine ive got the 4 up top and 2 lower then 2 factory fog lights and head lights

So i aim the 2 outside top ones towards the ditch on the side of the road for deer, and the 2 middle top ones are direcrly pointed in front so i have complete coverage, then the 2 on the mirrior brackets are pointed straight for that little bit extra light when on the trails or when people dont shut there brights off when passing me haha

Ive got them wired 2 per switch
2 top outsides
2 top middles
2 mirrior bracket lights
And one switch is a master that turns them all on

http://www.quadratec.com/Assets/Installation/10412.pdf check these instructions out, and look on the right hand side to see which diagram you should follow depending on the type of light you have
