2023 R1T - FG/FE/20"AT Dark
I'm looking for a good set of All-Seasons to complement the 20" wheels on my R1T. Has anyone had the opportunity to try these Nokian's out? I've heard good things about the manufacturer but can't find any Rivian specific test cases out in the wild. It was always my plan to swap out the ATs for the majority of my driving, which will be on the highway, I just didn't want to worry about the less supported 21" size or the smaller side wall of the 22s (I have an unfortunate history with potholes where I live).

They highlight Rivian as a supported vehicle so I'm assuming the vehicle weight won't be an issue here. My main questions surround the impact to ride, road volume and range. If not these tires, any suggestions on other options would be great. Thanks!

The load rating of these will be higher than the stock ATs so no worries there. The speed rating is a bit lower but I don't' expect that would be an issue either since they are still rated to 112mph.

I doubt you will find specific experience on a Rivian with these tires, for other options there are a few threads where people have done different 20" AS tires with a search you should be able to find them.

I’m very much leaning towards doing the same with the nokians, and throwing the pirellis on a recycled dodge set of rims.

I believe they are 2 lbs lighter per tire, and advertise low rolling resistance.

I couldn’t find anyone either who actually put them on, but they might be a good bet

Go with the 275/60/20 size for more range. It will be a lighter tire and feel more responsive handling.
There’s been issues with changing the settings going from the 34’ tire to the 33’ (or Vice versa) some folks require a camera reset to the tune of $400.

i was looking at getting them and called Nokian and they stated they don't have any of the 20's AT that fit the Rivian available for sale. so you may want to check availability.

Thanks. I did a preliminary search but didn't find much in the way of a solid recommendation, but I'll take another look. My original plan was to wait until new tires were needed and then make the switch to All Seasons, as it feels like the best balance of what suits my typical driving habits, but now I'm thinking it would be handy to have both, especially if someone out there had some compelling data on a particular brand. Alternatively, having two sets of wheels/tires for different occasions could be fun, but then, space, money and hassle. Decisions decisions...

Here are a couple I found where someone actually installed something different that might suit your needs.

I'm actually looking to pull the trigger on the same tires, Nokian One HT - 275/60/20. So looking at this thread, Rivian needs to adjust bunch of settings if I'm from 34' to 33' ? (I have the stock ATs right now). Is this absolutely necessary?

I had Discount Tire install a set of the Nokian One HT 275/65/R20 just this week. It’s too soon to speak to range or efficiency but they are a lot quieter than the Pirelli AT+. Pretty much the equivalent of switching from any snow tire to any summer tire. I like the fact that they are the same size so no reconfiguration of the vehicle is necessary.

Can you share any photos of them installed?

Don’t bother. Stick with current size. $180 to update computer and $400 to recalibrate cameras.

I'm excited to hear about the range impact once you've put some miles on it. Aside from the quieter road noise, any other noticable differences in ride feel / handling?
