I really like the look of these. Would be interested in a set of bronze on my launch green.
I'm planning on getting some bronze wheels on my Limestone. I'm interested in these, but price will definitely play a deciding role. Wife's already unhappy with how much I've spent kitting out Thor. The goal is to spend less than getting the OEM AT setup from the Gear Shop (very doable with EV Sportsline R800s for example).

Those blacks look really nice. I have been shopping 20's to replace my OEM 21's. These may be the ones.

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.
I would be surprised if they cause a hit compared to the stock 20s that 90% of people have.

Yeah I've been waiting on price and availability for this for a few weeks now...

Judging by the price for other Forged Monoblock wheels from Black Rhino, these will probably be listed for at least $599. Every other Monoblock forged wheel made by black rhino is only 18” and their cast wheels increase in price significantly when you get a bigger size. I’m going to assume that these wheels are going to be in the $699-750 range.

What’s interesting is that’s not actually that much cheaper than the Rivian wheels.

You can buy the 20” Rivian wheels from the service center directly without tires for ~$2850 (with tax in California).

To buy a set of 4 of these will probably run you from $2650 (if they cost $599) or more than $2,900 (if they cost $699). Also including CA tax and delivery.

Now black rhino could surprise us… but for that price I’ll stick with the OEM look and having my wheels match in the vehicle dash.

Gotta factor in the lighter wheel and unique look!

But thanks for the research. I think you're right on pricing!

I have OEM 20” darks and 21’s in the dash and I am not as annoyed as I thought I would be lol

I would definitely go for the bronze if I could still get the service center to change my wheel diameter to make sure the speedo and mileage is correct.

Thats what has kept me from pulling trigger on the EV wheels. Had a labor day deal (though I think I wanted the R1000 and not the R800).

These are the first really good looking wheels I have seen. These are now the leader in bronze for my El Cap R1S. I'm thinking these might get better range then the OEM wheels if my understanding of wheel aero is correct.

Very Interesting... I want a set of 20's to go along with the 21's! These look the best out of the current options

I think that’s a good estimate
