Size of round lights mounted to bumper?

This weekend I will be installing a hoop, winch plate, winch, winch anchor and light brackets to the Hard Rock bumper that I have on my JKU Sahara. I haven't yet picked out lights to put on those brackets.

What I'd like to know is what is the typical size of light mounted in this area? Mounted to the bumper, within the hoop. Maximus 3 states a 9" light can be mounted there, however a friend of mine had 9" ARB Intensity LED lights there and it looked a bit goofy. AEV uses IPF lights, which are just under 8". Checking quadratec, they have many different models ranging from 4"-6" typically.

Currently I'm looking at 6" KC HiLites Gravity LED spot lights to go in that location, but I'm wondering if they may look too small.

Obviously this question has to do entirely with aesthetics and not performance. Performance will be important, but I don't want to end with something hilariously large or small, so I'm hoping folks can post images of their own setup and what size they're running!

Below is an AEV image to show the location I'm talking about.

I had 6.5” PIAA 520s for years. I like how they looked.

I have the PIAA LP570 LED long range driving lights under the brush guard. They are 7" diameter. For comparison, the fog lights in the bumper are PIAA LP530 fog lights and are 3.5" diameter and the pillar lights are PIAA LP550 driving lights which are 5" diameter.
