Rivian R1T on Street Tires Went 60 Miles Farther in Highway Test (caranddriver.com)
I have two questions for the group:
#1 - Do you believe the difference is really this drastic? Do you believe it's all from the tire/wheel size?
#2 - I currently have the 20" AT spec'd as I plan to do some overlanding, camping, etc.... but not a TON of it... you know, maybe 1 weekend/month? The rest is standard urban/freeway driving.
If you were me, do you believe the off-road performance with the 22" Road wheels would be diminished enough to make it worth the lost range to stick with the 20's? Contrarily, any insight into the road-feel of the 20's vs. 22's?
I guess I'm trying to figure out - if we know the 22's get way better range, how different is the performance between the two wheel sets both on and off-road? Will I notice a huge difference in either with a particular configuration?
Based on my usage, would I be unhappy with road wheels as an outdoor enthusiast?
