This one, that one and the other one.

I'll go against the grain on this one. Seen many Ford's, Dodge's & Chevy's lifted in a similar manner with big tires. In my opinion, this one fits right in with those. If that's the look you want for YOUR OWN truck, then have at it. There's a gazillion of the other manufactured trucks lifted in a similar manner. This doesn't look any better or worse than any of those do.

Some TRUCK owners like to lift their trucks and put big tires on them. Nothing wrong with it if that's what they chose to do with their own vehicle. This one might even look better than some of the other trucks lifted in a similar manner.

Naturally, this being an EV, going to seriously impact range, so you probably won't see too many of them, but I have already seen several F-150 Lightnings that have been lifted with big tires installed.

Whenever I see a truck with wheels like that and no fender flares I see 100 cracked windshields.
And a driver who seriously doesn't GAS about anyone but themselves.

Our Raptor rides on 37x12.5’s from the factory and dang, I wouldn’t have it any other way. 10” of tire + 13” of suspension is the jam! If we ever get our R1S, we won’t go 20AT’s again as the range hit on our R1T was real.

I think the only problem the truck the OP posted and that look is the poke. Not my style. But other than that, having actual sidewall can’t be beat for a lot of actual off road things.

This lifted R1T looks like a Cartoon Criminal from the kids movie Cars.

So wrong on so many levels.

I wouldn’t do it with my Rivian therefore it is stupid

actually it reminds me of the toys Stompers with their big wheels and that makes it kinda cool.

Obviously it’s not practical, but as a trophy truck it’s looks good to me. Little less offset may look better.

I need extra wide tires on my truck for regular driving on very soft sand, so I welcome aftermarket lift options to help those who are looking to upgrade for different applications.

The R1T’s weight means I’m gonna need a chonky wheel/tire/lift combo to get to my favorite places.

I like it. Obviously to each their own would probably look a lot better with tires that aren't as wide and don't have a ridiculous offset. But hey its better than Carolina squat.

Tiny peckers all around but what's the range impact?
It will probably spend most of its time broken and waiting for parts so why worry about range?
