    Tire wear condition at 15k miles, 10 months (photos)

    I'm at 10k miles and all those miles were on conserve mode and i had nowhere near that kind of wear. you can see wear on my tires, but only because the rears look brand new. if there was no rear for reference, you'd say the fronts were pretty new

    My First and Likely Last Post

    like everyone said, can't blame you, your reasons for switching to a (Y) make sense. before you do though, i would have to say that i think you should listen to @swhme and try and rent a (Y) for a day or two, and an R1T (if you can) to compare the two. I my self pre ordered in Aug 2019 and took...

    Which front fascia/headlight alignment is correct?

    i looked at my truck, and it as well is like yours, driver side flush or slightly further in from fascia and passenger side is just proud of the fascia.

    Which front fascia/headlight alignment is correct?

    i may be wrong, but i do believe that the driver side is suppose to be aimed lower (to avoid blinding the driver of the on-coming traffic) and the passenger side aimed higher (this is to light up road signs).

    They hit me in my driveway resulting in $21,195.95 repair bill

    i called Rivian customer support and asked for a list of certified Rivian collision centers near me, your damage shouldnt be too bad as long as the support for the fender is intact. good luck and i hope yours doesnt take as long as mine has.
