Replacement Tires are a tricky thing with the R1's, lots of opinions and different options depending on your level of comfort if you step away from the OEMs.

Here's a poll to see where the average forum member stands:

Honestly - probably an “XT” variety - so not all-terrain or mud-terrain but the in-between - and 295/60r20 most likely.

**As a note LT is Light Truck - and normally has to do with load capacity not tread design AT All-Terrain.

You know what they say about guys who run LT tires?

They carry a heavy load!

Why not go to 35"? (295/65R20)
For 34", Nitto Ridge Grappler would be perfect, only 60#s too...average MPK likely around 1.8 or so...35" is only 63# for the Ridge Grapplers...
Another good one is the 62# Toyo Open Country RT Trail:

I’m hoping more off-road options will be made available for the 21” wheels. I should have checked alternative tire options before locking in with the 21” wheels.

Won’t 35s rub in the lowest setting? I love the look of these and that size (295/65R20). But, I’m hesitant until I hear more about the ride, noise, longevity, efficiency, and potential rubbing issues.

Think it's hit or miss, some do some don't depending on rims/tires...there's a thread here somewhere....

35x10.5 are on the menu for sure - i’m hoping at least a year out from new tires, but I’m always looking for what’s going on. I’m not even too concerned about losing the ability to drop the lowest not a huge dealbreaker for me. Really depends on the crown design of the tire and how wide the actual tread patch/shoulder is - that can be the difference between a fitting a true 35 or a false 35 tire.

Response choices are a bit too simplified.

I’ll be looking for highly efficient ATs (+wheels) to replace stock 21s when the time comes. The Nitto Recon Grapplers do look promising, as of today.

Another way to read it is:
1) OEM
2) Non-OEM heavy duty (>50#)
3) Non-OEM SL/XL sizes (<50#)

based on your description, you would select option 1 or 2.

Not enough options, in my opinion.

For my everyday commute-to-work over the summer (non-crappy-weather months), I want as much efficiency as possible (while not compromising wet and stopping /turning traction. I'm OK with the OEM performance and wouldn't downgrade, but wouldn't mind an upgrade. A lot to ask, but if Michelin, for example, can improve any of these metrics while at least matching the others, I'm in).

For crappy weather months and my occasional off-road adventure, I have a set of ATs that are 3PMS (Yes, I know, these are NOT as good as dedicated winters. I've made peace with that because I don't have bottomless pockets. If money were no option, I'd have 3 sets of tires). The ATs I chose, I chose because they're relatively efficient for ATs, but also reportedly capable for ATs.

I see what you're saying.

But to me, that'll absolutely depend on the time of the year :)
