Opinion: Round or Rectangular lights on Light Bar

Right now, I have 4 Hella 500s on my Carr light bar, and 2 500s in the front. Generally, do most people put rectangular or round lights up top? I cant decide if I want to keep my 500s, or buy 4 hella 550s. Im kind of leaning towards the rectangular, but i dont know.

Round. I'd move the Hella 500s to your bumper or otherwise lower to the ground and use a long-range spotlight for your lightbar...Like KC Daylighters or ProComp Explorers. You could also look into IPF off road lights, or if you've got the bucks, Lightforce. You'll get better performance from a long-range off road light when it comes to a mounting point that high off the ground.
