The outer rings of the car will always be dimmer than the inner rings due to the design of the headlight itself. However since we have increased the total brightness of these lights the outer rings will be brighter now than the V4 rings

One major thing to keep in mind is that you cant overcome the design of the rings. The outer ring has small grooves behind the ring and these grooves reflect the light outwards. At certain angles the grooves are not visible as you can see in the 1st picture of this stock headlight below. From an angle the grooves are not visible so you will not see any light.

What i always recommend to people is to step back from the car 30 feet and look at the lights straight on and around eye level with the headlights. From there you will be able to see the rings fully. The 2nd picture here is taken from 30-40 feet back and is a comparison of the stock bulbs vs LUX H8 V5 around 6900K. The picture has not been Photoshopped to change the rings at all and is exactly the way the looked in person as well.
