Am I the only one that wish the 20” all terrain wheels were uniformly gunmetal vs the current gunmetal with the shining machined ends? I would even prefer this look over the blacked out powdercoated 20” all terrain wheel look. I’m getting a Limestone R1T and I’m thinking the uniformed gunmetal wheels would compliment it well. I have touch base with one of the sellers (TWRAPS) of the vinyl colored wheel skins that cover the machined ends of the 20” all terrain wheels to see if he can created a gunmetal skin that would make the wheel appear one uniform gunmetal color. He’s working on it. (granted, this may already be available elsewhere). It’s a cheap way to evaluate the the all gunmetal wheel look at least.

I put the black carbon ones on my R1T. They look grey not black, so it makes the whole wheel look gunmetal.

prefer this look over the powdercoated black out look. I do like the all black 20's sold by rivian, but not $3500 like

Damn! Now I'm regretting putting black on instead of carbon fiber. I'll send pics tomorrow in the light, finished putting them on along with front grill PPF, light bar, and lip carbon.

Sure! Point of that pic was to show that from 10’ away you can barely tell that it’s not all gunmetal lol. But here’s a closer shot.

Those both look good. I think I like the carbon fiber look a little more. How difficult are they to get aligned? I watched the manufacturer's video but I figured they had a lot of practice at it.

I think carbon fiber looks better from a distance, but black is better up close.

It's generally easy after the first wheel... So long as you don't run out of daylight like I did 🤦🏼‍♂️
