Cool, curious to find out more info on performance. Do these tires match the weight and speed ratings of oem 20” tires?

Did you have Rivian reflash the car for those 34" tall tires? Or do they work fine without any reflash?

That’s a great tire, but pretty heavy. TireRack has it listed at 53 lbs. Just curious how that will impact range.

Michelins are great tires but look like poop with that gigantic sidewall.
Funny, same size and dimensions as OEM 20s, but no tread on shoulder does change the look a bit as does no 'dressing' on the rubber.

I'd like details after1k miles like range impact, sound, wear (after 5 or 10k miles)...

More pictures please. Also very eager to hear initial range impressions!

Would love to see a better picture of the whole truck in AP mode, those are a great tire and I bet you see increased range due to lower rolling resistance. These came stock on several Land Cruisers I’ve owned, they wear really well and will last much longer than the stock Pirellis. Did you consider the A/T2s as well?

briefly considered AT tires. Decided against since I only off-road on random/spontaneous occasion and did not want to sac the range, so decided to go for AS tires instead.

i believe a reflash is needed for range calc/speedo. tpms works fine (so far) so long as you swap from the old wheels or install a new set.

no, unfortunately the speed rating is slightly less. i don't remember the exact numbers but iirc they are around ~10% lower than the stock pirellis.

yea this is definitely a tradeoff between looks and performance. AT tires look 👌🏽

Interested to hear your findings. I was also looking at Defenders, or maybe the Pirelli Scorpion AS Plus 3. The stock tires don't seem to have good tread life, and I don't want to be having to change tires out every 12-18 months (~25,000 mile a year with commute and recreation).
