What would you get Asanti or Forgiato?

So I'm looking to picking up a used set of staggered 22" wheels in the morning but still not 100% on which ones. Either a set of Assnti Af122 with black face and chrome lip 255/30/22F 285/25/22R. Or all chrome Forgiato inferno's that I'd get powder coated black 255/30/22F 295/25/22R. I'm out of town at the moment and can't post the actual pics off image shack through my phone do here's what they look like. Let me know what y'all think.

Asanti

Unless you are getting these for less than a grand, I personally would get the 128s from wheels and caps.

Less than 1k I wish! Although I do like the 128's I would much rather get something else for the price. Those 128's would end up being way more than these wheels after shipping and getting tires for them. Thanks for your opinion tho.

To be different Forgiatios. Haven't seen those wheels on a 7 yet. Can you get the wheels done similar to the Maserati's wheels?

Yes, but if I go with those the face would probably be either all black or black/chrome.

Yeah I'm kind of leaning towards them more at the moment. Especially since I'm looking to painting the car jet black I'd be saving some cash on having the wheels painted.

I think 128's or Alpina b7 wheels are best for 7-series

You may get the BOX they came in for LESS than a GRAND!

I've always thought that Asunti's have the deepest Lips, but the Forgiato 3-piece wheels are hard to ignore!
I do like ALL the one's you have posted,..waaaaay better than the one's I've been looking at.

I ended up getting the Asanti's I loved the lip. They are 22x9.5 up front and 22x11 in the back. I'll post pics later on in the week when I drop the car and install the wheels.

The guy said "either...or." Why this chatter about wheels he didn't list??? He already narrowed it down to two.

Good choice, the Asanti's look good sitting and in motion. One really can't gage the Forgis, unless they are colored and moving. Sitting still they don't give you the same effect.
