Asanti Rims – Custom Street Appearance

Submitted by on 09/05/2009 – 16:37No Comment

You can rule the urban world with Asanti Wheels in practically no time at all. These wheels and rims, due to their serious looks and urban sizes, have come to dominate the street tuner segment these days. If you want a fast change in the appearance of your average-looking ride, then spending some cash on a set of Asanti wheels or rims could be the thing to do. And because they come in all the “urban” size, Asanti has a leg up in that market.

Make them bigger. These wheels and rims aren’t for the tiny-minded or faint of heart. And none of them can be had in midget-looking 15 inch sizes. In Asanti’s world, you start with 20 inch “dubs” and work your way up from there all the to some formidable 26 inch units.

Wheels or rims? There’s almost no difference between a set of wheels and a set of rims. The word “rims” is used more by urban street car “tuners” as a way to describe one of the things being sported on their vehicles (wheels). Once in a while, a wheel’s construction may warrant the term “rim,” but that’s pretty much it in the differences department. It’s a sure bet, though, that any wheel 20 inches and above (so-called “dubs”) is going to be called a “rim.”

Put in, take out. Years ago, the only material for Asanti Rims was steel. It didn’t rust, and it could take a pretty good beating. But steel was heavy, and that contributed to a car’s weight, overall. As a compromise between weight and utility, though, steel was the choice.

Going exotic. Nowadays, most custom wheels are made of aluminum or other alloys, like magnesium or titanium. One reason is that they’re lighter. This cuts down on rotating weight and the total heft of a car. This not only can help improve speed (the car weighs less and has less to haul), but the colors and styles possible when a wheel is made of a metal alloy are practically limitless.

Until rust do we part? Fastening a set of wheels to a car is easy. Most times, a simple set of four or five bolts is all that’s needed. Some of the really large specialty wheels or rims out there may need upwards of 8 or more, but Asanti wheels and rims usually have around 5.

It’s not hard to look marvelous. With Asanti wheels or Asanti rims, it’s almost impossible NOT to look good once a set is bolted to your ride. In fact, they look so good; they can make a station wagon look like it just came out of one of California’s finest custom car shops. Most of their products also combine high performance with high-end fashion, so those dubs you’re buying will be memorable for years to come.

Rolling on out. Even if high fashion isn’t your biggest concern a set of Asanti wheels can’t help but give you street credibility and fashion with little or no real effort. Sizes and styles vary wildly, so find the ones right for the statement you want to make and then step beck while Asanti Wheels make you an urban king!
