This looks like a unique Rivian OEM wheel with Goodyear tires

Where was this?
Look like some of the strip malls near Irvine HQ. And we had quite a bit of rain over the weekend. One very loud thunder that made me flinch and nearly fumble my beer.

And pit their prices against one another? R2 concept has Goodyear tires too. Wrangler TrailRunner AT?

Would not be surprised at all if Rivian switches to Goodyear as part of their supplier re-work and cost-down efforts.

I'm also glad that I have the original 20" darks because it's the best looking wheel I've ever seen and I like it a lot more than this new one.

I like that they are using Goodyear wheels. Those rims look really nice and complement the car very well.

Exactly. Things that can't be vertically integrated, like tires, need options for purchasing team to lower costs to lowest possible.
I am also wondering if they are moving away from 34.1" ATs, to 33". Seems like a more sensible choice, for sake of efficiency and without sacrificing off-pavement capability.

The tires are. Not the wheels. Wheels are made for Rivian by a OEM supplier (most likely one in China, like the current Rivian wheels and wheels for many other automakers).

I am such a sucker for 5-spokes. Hopefully these are a set option I can go with once my pirelli 21's are worn out in the next 8 months.

Why is the truck in cammo? Does this suggest that the refresh body panels have changed? That would surprise me, but you never know…

Good find. I prefer the current dark 20’s over these though.
