Lead synths often play their part above chords played by saw synths, keys, or other synths/instruments. Therefore, they rarely have low frequencies.

Nevertheless, stay consistent and always clean up the mix by setting a high-pass filter right before the key frequency. For lead synths this is often somewhere between 300Hz and 600Hz.

Set a low-pass filter at around 12kHz to define its high frequencies. This way you keep the high-end aspect of the lead synth, while saving enough space for the hi hats and crashes to come through cleanly.
