Interested to see what poll results are like on these tire options. Mind adding a poll here @Sultanum?
I'd put myself down for Scorpion Verde, don't need anything special.

I’m 20” AT all the way. My trucks spend a lot of time off the pavement and in snow/ice. I actually wish they had a 19” option, but I can make the 20’s work.

As leaded as my feet are, I'm still buying my R1T to spend as much time off the roads as possible. AT's all day every day.

I want the 20" wheels, but I want the all season tires on them. I'll be spending most of the time on pavement and would prefer a quieter tire with better range.

You're better off with 21's for maximum range and quietness.
22's would be best road handling with a slight reduction in range.

20's are going to be worst of the three for road use. The only reason to get 20's is for available off-road tread patterns in that size. If you don't want aggressive tread then don't get the 20's.

The problems with the 21" are (1) they are the least appealing design, and (2) the tire is an odd size that only Pirelli makes.

Yes, I know that from reading the Rivian website. Lower profile sidewall tires give better handling at the expense of ride quality. No thanks.

Yes, I know AT tires won't be great on the road, but they won't last for ever. I can replace them with more comfortable, quieter tires any time I want. There are more choices for 20" tires, unlike the 21". The 20" wheels look the best to me and being forged, they are stronger and lighter.

I appreciate the apparent concern you have about my choices.

I'm thinking to see how quiet these AT's are, and if not quiet enough, get another set of 20" wheels and put street tires on 'em.

Something to keep in mind. You cannot easily swap tires like you can on non-EVs. Tires for EVs need to 'handle' them. Weight, resistance, torque, etc.
As EVs become more popular, the tire options for them will not be far behind.

Great idea, I just did it! Sorry I've been a bit busy.

Not for everyone, but here in the Northeast, I'll take the 20's and run them into the ground from April thru to the end of Oct, then run dedicated winter service wheels & tires from Nov to April.
