Keep fiddling with them. Set the lockring just snug enough that they stay in place, but barely loose enough that you can twist them to adjust. While riding, if you start to feel your wrist getting uncomfortable, twist the grip juuust a bit, then keep riding a while longer.
If you angle them too steep, you won't get any support on your palm & heel, and you'll only be sliding forward and jamming the bar into the crook of your thumb. If they're too flat, it'll be like you're leaning on a table.
Somewhere in between, it'll be just right. You'll notice how much better it is after 30-60 minutes of riding.
