The focus is so broad-- at 20 feet, the beam pattern is fairly tight, but beyond that it spreads out so far and wide that you'd be blinding other drivers, and you wouldn't see as far as you can with regular halogens, either.
The glare outside of the main focus is bright enough to make every reflective surface in front of you light up like you're shining a light directly on it. This is fantastic for you, but absolutely miserable for everyone around you.
For the price, these are pretty good, honestly. If they had these in a better enclosure that focused the beams more effectively, these would be astoundingly good. I do not believe they are DOT legal as is, however-- and with the wide spread pattern, there's a very good chance you'll eventually be pulled over for running them. That's not a light ticket here in California.
I'm going to return these and go with the Truck-Lite 27450C headlamps instead.
I'll post a new thread with my review of those when I get them.
