Hmm. I disagree by about 3 feet. I think I was taught years ago the you look at the part of the road you want to go right under your backside (that's Aussie for 'between your eyes'); or alternately the part of the lane you focus on will go under your backside. In motorcycle terms you go where you look - you in a truck means you not so much the centre of the truck.
I use my bonnet (sorry 'hood') and its architectural features as things to line up with parts of the lane, especially in tight spots.
But do whatever works for you.
If necessary ask a kindly friend to follow you and tell you where in the lane you are travelling.
It's worth remembering that the left hand side of the truck & rig is the side you can best judge as to how close to cement barriers etc you are. Many people make sure they avoid the LH side barriers but fail to realize how close they are consequently to the RH side barriers!
The adjustment of mirrors helps greatly in all this. Don't point all the mirrors at what's behind you, just one will do for that or a reverse camera.
