I can tell you that Costco doesn't like the self sealing Michelins... at least not for patching. I had to have a Bolt EV towed out of there 3 yesrs ago.

I saw where someone put on a set of Continental Terrain Contact A/T tires for a more aggressive look and they reported no major impacts to range. I looked those up and they look like the specs meet the OEM tires, except for speed rating (T vs H).

Obviously no one is taking their R1 out on the town at 130MPH, but I’m sure there are some down falls going with a tire with a lower speed rating. I’m assuming they may wear faster or not be covered by the tire warranty. Worst case in a major accident I’m assuming an insurance company could use it as a contributing factor to reject coverage.
I installed these on my R1S yesterday per recommendations from others on here. I don’t think speed rating and tread life are correlated, but I’m no expert. The Continentals have a 60k tread warranty.

They look great and I can hardly tell a difference in road noise. Time will tell, but on paper it seems to be a more durable tire based on what people have gotten out of the OEM Pirelli’s.

Considering that Tire Rack carries Michelin and these are the only 22" tires from Michelin that they show that will work on an R1S, I would check that load rating again:

https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=X-Ice+Snow+SUV&partnum=75HR2XISSUVXL&vehicleSearch=true&fromCompare1=yes&autoMake=Rivian&autoYear=2023&autoModel=R1S&autoModClar=275/50-22 XL Extra Load
Those are the snow tires I installed last year. They were $250 each in December of 2022. The 115 load rating is fine, some of R1T's shipped with 115 load rating tires and others with 116.

The OP is talking about an AT tire, probably not yet listed on the website, but available for dealers to order, such as Costco.

I have 22" wheels - original Pirellis lasted 18K. Replaced with CONTINENTAL TERRAINCONTACT H/T - UTQG of 720AA. Reduced my load capacity by 85# (per the sticker they (Discount Tire) put on my door - although they have the same load of 115). Truck rides a bit smoother - love them so far (~3K miles). Out the door installed for $1357.

I was at Costco over the weekend and inquired if they carry anything that fits our Rivian 22 in wheels. Surprisingly he said they can special order a Michelin 22 in Tires that are rated for 50K miles. The cost for all 4 came to under $2K installed. He showed me Winter tires set that fits these wheels as well that was about ~$250/tire

Anyone replaced stock Pirelli's with other brands that have better tread life?
What are the $250 tires you mention?
I've seen an older post someone put on Toyo Open Country A/T iii's on 22" R1 Sport Brights.

Any difference in efficiency? Hope you can provide an update once it snows :).

Hi - not any noticeable difference. I have not "road tripped" with them yet - just around and such - but the average efficiency has not moved.

I've used Michelins in the last 30 years, and they have been great! Yes, Costco has a Michelin replacement but it's the Michelins with only 40K mile warranty. For under $1K, it's not bad at all. One can use the Costco Tire Selector to find out if what's available in their area. https://tires.costco.com/

I have attached what's avaialble in my area.
