2022 Rivian R1T / 2015 BMW 335i
I recently worked with Black Rhino wheels to test out and get media content for their new Rivian specific wheels!

Black Rhino Voltaic Forged Monoblock
Size:
20x8.5 +35
Standard Finishes: Gunmetal and Bronze
Scheduled for release in 2023 Q4.
Designed and engineered specifically for the Rivian R1T and R1S with load rating, strength, and wheel weight in mind.

I used my original AT tires and I have no rubbing issues at any height.

I weighed them before I mounted them and they are 6 lbs lighter than my stock 20” wheels.

Range impact? I know, lobbing you a slow pitch there 🤗

I haven’t had them on that long but it seems a little better since they are lighter
The weight difference is negligible when it comes to range.

These rims look awesome. Definitely the best looking wheels I have seen yet on a R1.

I think they are not as aerodynamic as the OEM wheels you replaced. I am 82.4% sure there will be a measurable range impact at highway speeds. You probably won't notice a difference below 50 mph, but a 75 or 80, a 5% hit is reasonable.

But they do look amazing.

We'll await your detailed report of temps, headwind, tire pressure, and other variables compared with OEM and new wheels on a controlled course of 50+ miles. Thanks for your dedication to science!

Rolling on 34” ATs. Aero is of little concern. One doesn’t choose steady diet of ice cream to worry about becoming overweight.
