Did you have issues with your wheels rubbing the inner fender liner when in the lowest setting?
That's what I have been reading as well. I hope it is as simple as resetting/recalibrating the system and nothing more involved.Ouch..that’s not a little rub. That looks like it’s squashed in there. That might be a misaligned/broken height sensor. Also possible the car was incorrectly calibrated for the 21 or 22 wheels instead of the 20 since that is a larger overall size IIRC
This is a good idea. 33’s are considered the minimum tire OD for off road rigs. That said 20” with 34” is not enough sidewall for off-roading. Now that you mention it I think 34’s don’t make sense, larger OD which leads to heavier, more expensive tires, but not enough sidewall to make them off-road worthy. It would have made more sense to have their off road set up to be a 34” on 17” rims and on road to be a 32-33” on 20” rims. So what I’m getting at is completely reasonable to go to a 32-33” on the 20’s.Loving my Rivian, but the more I look at the wheels and tires, feel like they pushed just a little too far on tire size for the size of the truck. At least on the 20" wheels. Tires are 34", which is larger than most full size trucks. Thinking one series less (275/60/20) would be a better fit all around. 1 inch total circumference, which is what, less than 1/4" more space to the front or rear fender wells, as well as the top. Minor, but maybe just enough to improve the proportions in terms of tire size to truck size.
The 21's and 22's both have smaller tire circumferences, I think right around 33.
Probably going to get a second set of wheels and tires and likely a tire with 33 inches instead. Will see if there's any notable difference in appearance / proportions.
And I refer to my earlier post. Just put an order in for new wheels and tires. Continuing on what I said earlier, the new wheels are 9" wide, rather than the 8 1/2 stock wheel. So, went with a 285/60/20 tire instead of the original 275/65/20. This will bring me down to around 33 1/2 circumference, right in the middle of the 21's and 20"s from Rivian. Probably hardly noticeable, but that extra 1/2 inch could help with the proportions just a little and the extra 1/8" in space from the fender well might be just enough to make the difference in a slight rub with 20's and no rub at all. The 34 inch tires seem to be just a hair too large.21's are 33" diameter, the 20's are 34"
Sounds like they're still figuring that out. Some reviews I saw said the Rivian's speedometer was off by 3 MPH. Would make sense if it had the 20's on it and was programmed for the 21's, or vice versa.When I mentioned possibly getting new tires at some point to my guide today, she said if I were ever to do that to let Rivian Support know the new tire sizes. Apparently they can push down the new geometry OTA so the truck knows what it’s riding on.
And other than the mystery tweet above, doesn't seem to be an issue for other Rivian owners. Haven't seen another owner report it.I tested this scenario on my 21” tires with my Delivery Specialist today, not an issue. In the way home on I-95, it dipped down to the lowest setting at highway speeds, no issue for me (yet).
Hey @Plgmein Rivian's lowest ride height setting is what it is when it's parked. There isn't a special mode to make it lower from my understanding.I'm new to the forum so apologize in advance for any mistakes. I saw somewhere that there is super low ride height that is only for entry/exit. Anyone know about that and how to access it?
