Agreed. Asanti is probably the best wheel company on the market today. They have the nicest looking wheels. A great second choice would be TIS. I think they are also an awesome brand.

Thanks.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I put some 24" dubs on layaway but was just checking what everyone else thought.

I dunno about the "BEST" but I like the TIS 04 and 06 models and the DUB Big Homies.

You could not have said it better!!! IMHO TIS and DUB (MHT) are hardly the best.... the chrome is terrible, I rarely have seen one of their wheels without some kind of pitting, or even missing chrome on the side of the spokes.......

You really can not even compare a 1 piece TIS or DUB wheel to a true 3 piece forged wheel like Asanti, Davin, Avus, or GFG....

D'vinci also just released a forged line that have some really clean and unique styles...

So what's the difference in construction that makes the Asanti's so much better? This is all going to help me out when I buy my new rims.

all my aftermarket wheels are giovanna at the moment because I liked most of their old styles. But the newest that I like are those dub floaters.

Yea I probably would too.. but I don't like the picture of the ones you just posted, those aren't the million dollar wheels. Simular but that's not them.

Wow. Those are so ridiculous. I think those would look good on my Escalade. Haha. Wish I had money to drop on these crazy Asanti's. Bryan, go for them man. That will complete your sponsorship.

Thanks.

WOW missing chrome or all of them being pitted? Like I said don't know about the "best". I just like the simple design to them not refering to anything else.

to in a way contradict what I was saying about MHT products....I was fortunate enough to see their new forged line and I must say they are definately on a par with the rest of the big dog companies.. I was also told they will have 24x9 available for chrysler 300's as well as other big body cars, and smaller SUV's!!

Where do you drive a vehicle with million dollar rims on it?.. I'd be worried about a diamond falling off or something. lol I can't wait to see what kind of rubber these come wrapped in. *imaganing my wife curbing million dollar wheels...DIVORCE!*

I would never put my girl in control of my vehicle rollin' on a million dollars worth of diamonds.

If I ever saw those parked on the street I would try and steal them. I dont care how many locks they got on their wheels I would just take the whole damn car.

Or even better I would just go up to the wheels and start chipping off enough diamonds and sapphires to buy me a rolls royce!

I wanna see the idiot who buys those.

I don't know if this is true, but I heard about the best part of buying the $1,000,000 Asanti Rims. I was told there was a deal going on where if you purchased the rims from Asanti, you were given a brand new Bentley Continental GT free. Haha. I am not joking at all. I honestly heard this before. If this is true, I will be amazed. Can someone confirm this?

Thanks.

Even with the Bentley GT it's still the biggest ripoff in the world!! Going by what they say, theres 12,800 jewels divided by 1100 karats = .08 karats each. As we all know in terms of diamonds, it's not how many you have but how BIG it is. $750,000 for some swap meet diamonds is a joke.

I just find it funny. I think I would rather buy a Ferrari, Lamborghini, and a Bentley, put some nice Asanti rims on all of them (not the $1,000,000 set) and call it a day. With all this together, I am probably saving a good amount of money.

Thanks.

I believe that there have been three sets sold. I canít imagine who would have the balls to drive around in these wheels. They would get jacked in a minute if not killed:gungrin::gun2::brutal::gun:

TIS04 in 24s do look a little small. I would ge them in 26s. I looked around my local recycler and found some good deals. 24s form 2,000-3,400 and some TIS04 26s for 5,000. I would save up for some Asanti wheels
