I know what "high beams" means, and sometimes use the phrase, but upon reflection it seem like in my area (Michigan -Midwestern US) we usually say "brights" or "bright lights". For example, when a driver approaching from the opposite direction on a dark, rural highway approaches we might say "that jerk is blinding me with his brights" or "he still has his bright lights on".
