  1. Off roading with 22s?

    The Continental ATs should be fine on the 22s for all but intense rock. I’ve don’t some off-roading with them but mostly sand flats, and creek beds. The stock Pirelli 22s seemed very prone to punctures so not sure I’d use them. See this Smoking Tire video at 22 min starting point.
  2. Overcharging a Standard+ Battery

    My quad motor large pack has odd range displays too. It tops at 97% at 320 miles. Charging to 100% adds no miles despite adding over 5.5 kWh. Driving from 100-97% does not use any miles either.

    Absolutely! Each scratch will remind you of a great adventure! No reason to have all this capability and not use it!
  4. Jason Camissa's verdict on R1 Gen 2: Substantial update to a near-perfect vehicle

    My R1S definitely rides worse than my wife’s telluride in terms of comfort but for any other on or off road performance metric it’s far better…and it’s not so bad that it bothers anyone. Kind of what I expected it would be after the last update. Before that it was pretty poor.
  5. Proud Gen-1 owner

    I’ll be keeping my gen 1 for a long time, especially since it’s launch green. $68k after the tax credit was a steal, $40k less than what I’d configure now (tri motor).
  6. 22” vs 20” Wheel Comparison - Real World

    I got Continental Terraincontact ATs on the 22s and think it’s a great compromise for street use and light off-roading. I like the look of 22s on the R1S much better and don’t do intense off-roading (yet?) Efficiency is only about 5% less than stock Pirelli 22s, so a little better than Pirelli...
  7. Ceramic tint the windshield?

    Yes like others said 70% is perfect on the windshield.
  8. Sport Mode vs. AT Mode efficiency?

    You might get slightly better efficiency but not more than a few percent and the ride quality is terrible and there will be much more negative camber in low or lowest so the inner part of the tires will wear much quicker. All purpose and normal height for everyday use.
  9. Any recommendations on 22" Tire Replacement

    Not me but I’m at 2.27 mi/kwh now since installing AT. I’m at 2.32 lifetime. This is a little skewed since weather has been good for efficiency for the majority of miles. Before winter I was at 2.42 so I think a 7% hit for AT is still about right. If you need every last mile get the HT otherwise...
  10. Any recommendations on 22" Tire Replacement

    Continental terrain contact HT in 275/50/22 is the tire to get, or AT if you want all terrain. I went with the AT and it’s great so far. Smoother ride and still handles well. About a 7% efficiency drop vs stock so not bad with an AT tire. HT should be similar efficiency to stock.
  11. 3rd Row Access for R1S with Rear Facing Car Seat?

    Right, R1S doesn’t tilt like the expedition it just has the top fold and bottom slide using the button on the seat. The seat can still be slid forward (lever under the seat) without the fold and there’s enough room for kids to get to the third row without the fold. I think some infant bases...
  12. 22” Continental Terrain Contact A/T tires resulted in a negligible INCREASE in efficiency (2.07 mi/kwh) compared to OEM Pirellis (2.04 mi/kwh)

    Stock 22” road tires was 2.3. I was trying to say these Continental 22” all terrain are a little better than stock 20” all terrain which is a 10% or so reduction from 22” road tires.
  13. 22” Continental Terrain Contact A/T tires resulted in a negligible INCREASE in efficiency (2.07 mi/kwh) compared to OEM Pirellis (2.04 mi/kwh)

    Short efficiency update after a few hundred miles, I’m getting 2.14 mi/kwh. Was getting 2.30 with stock tires. I will track for longer and update but seems like these are a little better than stock 20”.
  14. 22” Continental Terrain Contact A/T tires resulted in a negligible INCREASE in efficiency (2.07 mi/kwh) compared to OEM Pirellis (2.04 mi/kwh)

    No issue with tirebuyer.com and local independent shop that specializes in track vehicles, autocross etc. They even had road force balancing. T is fine, 118 mph and Rivian top speed is 112 mph so just find somewhere else.
  15. 3rd Row Access for R1S with Rear Facing Car Seat?

    That would be interesting, like an old school minivan.
  16. 3rd Row Access for R1S with Rear Facing Car Seat?

    I have 4 kids 5 and under and the R1S works great! It’s not quite as roomy as our telluride and lack of captains chairs is a downside but it’s completely doable. My setup is below. 3rd row: Driver: 5 1/2 year old in booster. Passenger: 4 year old in forward facing car seat (she can buckle...
  17. Need advice for family road trip IL to FL

    We were considering St Louis to Destin last summer with my wife and 3 young kids (5 and under) but took my parents minivan instead and glad we did. Nashville specifically had terrible reviews for CCS chargers. Also there are stretches where you’ll be able to drive 80+ mph and that will kill...
  18. 22” Continental Terrain Contact A/T tires resulted in a negligible INCREASE in efficiency (2.07 mi/kwh) compared to OEM Pirellis (2.04 mi/kwh)

    Yes, it’s a more comfortable ride than Pirelli 22” stock tires and range seems to be on par with the 20” all terrains. Got 2.0 mi/kwh at 70 mph on a 50 mile trip but at 40 degrees. Here’s a pic with tire shine.
