$3500 for Black Rims on Launch Edition is too much - after market options?

People are focused way too much on only the wheel size.
In Rivians case, the efficiency of the wheel/tire combos they are offering will be (from most efficient to least):
21s
22s
20s

The 20s will be the least efficient, even thought they are on the smallest wheel size. A number of factors come into play, but likely primarily because the overall diameter will be larger, with lots of heavy rubber near the circumference.
Not to mention it’s an All Terrain tire which will undoubtedly have a higher rolling resistance.
