The 20 inch brights are my second favorite wheel offering.

That sound will take some getting used to with the windows rolled down.
So instead of hearing "just nature" its gonna sound like a jet flying overhead when offroad? Ugh.

What was the sound? Was that the battery management heating/cooling or what?

Its Rivian's low speed sound that is required under 15 mph I think. All EVs have to emit some sound to let you know of their presence by law.

Yeah, that same sound is present in other low-speed videos. Not my favorite, if I'm honest - not that I have an alternative. Funny that they make the lock 'chirp' an actual bird chrip, but the low-speed sound is like jet traffic. 🤷‍♂️

The level of noise in those videos is quite jarring, if I'm honest, but I don't feel that they are entirely accurate. The unit I drove had the low-speed sound enabled, and I didn't find it to be excessive or even very noticeable in the real world. Perhaps there is something happening where the sound is amplified by the recording device when there is a lack of background noise (some sort of volume normalization)?

EDIT: Added my own video and you can tell that the noise is quieter than the rocks under the tires.

I don’t hate it. Wonder what size those tires are. They look bigger than a 34 or 35.
Looks like these could possibly be Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003LT. Closest size looks like a 285/55R22. Not my thing but hopefully whoever is running those will share fitment feedback with the community.

Pretty sharp. Anybody have an educated guess on which brand/type/size these are? Too blurry to zoom. Would also love to know ballpark range from the owner, if they happen to read this thread…

Sincerely,
Waffler 20/22
