Has anyone had any experience with the ride of Asanti wheels. I'm considering purchasing a set with Nitto tiresin 22's. I presently have 22's on my ESV and the ride is great. I would hate to buy these expensive wheels and not enjoy the ride please help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I really wouldn't see how these wheels would affect your ride quality. Tires are going to be the deciding factor. The more meat you have on that tire the better the ride (meaning that tire is going to absorb things on the road better). So a 295/45 or a 305/45 would have plenty of meat on there. But Asanti definetly makes some NICE wheels.

I would have to say that I dont know what 22's you have on your truck now, but the ride shouldnt change much. The ride depends a lot more on the tire, not the rim. So I would recommend if you like the tire you have now, then put the same size and brand tire on the asanti wheel and you will love it. The only way it may change is if the tire is wider, but that should make your truck feel more stable.

P.S. If your gonna get asanti, I recommend the zebra or gator wheel. For my taste. But, really get something with a full face, no lip. Trust me people will thing you have 24's. I have 24's and I have a deep lip and now people ask "are those 22's". :thepan:

Nothing but precision. These are the same wheels that are going on my Escalade. Just waiting upon sponsorship to clear with them.

We may be able to put in a group purchase.. Sounds like a lot of people are interested in getting a set.

I think a group purchase is a great idea can some one put it together?

Synergetic has the connections.. Should wait until he can get his sponsorship taken care of. It may help him with his sponsorship as well, to produce a high number of orders for them. Lets see what happens.

If you guys are for sure on which wheels, size and color you want, I can go ahead and do a "group" thing and talk to them about getting discounts on each wheel.

Depending on when this group purchase occurs, I'm pretty sure I will want a set too.

Thanks.

Anybody else? If i'm going to try and get a discount for everybody, i'd like the order to be big. And please, serious buyers only.

How low do you think you can get 26s for?

Probably cheaper than MSRP.
It all depends on which wheel, which color and which size.
The more "for sure" orders I get, the better.

When do you guys plan on setting the date for the transaction?.. As of now, doubt if I'd have enough time to put that much money together. < Very doubtful, and on a tight budget. Thanks anyway Synergetic. Hope they cut you guys a good deal on them.

probably???
I would expect on a group buy they would be considerably cheaper than MSRP. I mean who pays MSRP even for one set these days, or any product for that matter??? Let alone a group buy of a few sets of wheels... Do you have any kind of solid numbers? or a percentage that we could work with???

No man.
I told you. I can do what I can when I have a list of people who want the wheels. Right now, I only have a few people interested. I don't even have a list, so its nothing more than a PROBABLY.

What wheel companies are you set up with? I would love to do a deal with Synergetic on the Asanti's, but I would be interested to know what you have at your place.

Thanks.

Your looking at $5k + for a set of 24" Asanti's JUST RIMS. I doubt you'll muster up enough buying power to get that many people to bite. $5K for Asanti's is a phenominal price but not that many people can afford $5k worth of rims.

I can get 24" Asantis for a little over $4k. Thats saving you almost $1,000.
