The problem with some LEDs is that they donít focus the light down the road. This is noticed in reflector housings as they donít have lenses like projectors do.

The real problem is blinding people. With increasing the measurable lux output, itís going to be brighter on oncoming traffic as well.

The danger of the increase in brightness is losing down road vision. Hopefully you didnít sacrifice that with your setup. Itís pretty important at highway speeds.
Easy to recognize the LED lights approaching you---and I don't think the gains in visibility outweigh the offset in visibility to oncomers.
