    What a project! This has been a long road getting these wheels finished, but we are so happy with the outcome. For our first in-house wheel project we made Off-Road strength our first priority. In order to make these wheels virtually indestructible, we had to add a few pounds to the weight compared to the OEM wheels. The main reason for this is that the Rivian is essentially the weight of a heavy Diesel 1 Ton 8-lug wheel truck, then throw in 800+ HP with only 5 lug nuts, it's virtually mandatory any wheel that goes on the Rivian be Hub-Centric, and being Forged Aluminum is just that extra sense of security. We bend the wheel bead area on the Ram 2500/3500 trucks all the time off road, and the Rivian will be no different if the wheels are not strong enough.

    If you don't know what Hub-Centric is, here are a few point that make Hub-Centric so important on certain vehicles. The most important detail, in my opinion, is that a Hub-Centric wheel takes any Shear-Forces from impacts off the lug studs. This means that the only loads the studs see are fastening clamping forces, or rotational Shear Forces from braking/accelerating.

    The weight of the vehicle, how hard you drive Off-Road, big pot holes, etc, are a non-issue as the center hub is taking the impact forces, instead of the lug studs. Much safer! When lug nuts come loose on Lug-Centric wheels, it's generally going to be from hard impacts allowing the wheel face to slightly shift a tiny amount on the hub, but that tiny amount can grow quickly into a loose wheel, as the wheels spin down the road. Hub-Centric also makes the wheel run more true down the road if there are issues with machining or lug-stud or lug-nut symmetry, with the hub forcing the wheel dead-center and true.

    In the future we do plan to make a lighter weight version wheel, for people mostly concerned with range or racing around a paved track, but really, 5lbs off of a wheel on a 7000 pound vehicle is not going to change a lot in the range department. For the best range, a light weight tire with a smooth, low rolling resistance tread, is the biggest player. Reducing the weight far out near the tread of the tire, is what will give you the biggest effect in rotating mass reduction effect.

    Another detail we incorporated is to make the wheel a 1/2" more narrow than OEM. We did this so that when Off Road the tire sidewall bulge is sucked in a little more so it's protected better, which also helps protect the wheel from rock rash, or curb-rash. Also, most tires in the size we'll be running on the Rivian prefer an 8" wide wheel.

    For more resistance to Off-Road abuse, the outer wheel lips that normally get damaged or bent, are extra thick. We also incorporated a sunk pocket that the valve stem is down in, so that rocks or anything bouncing around won't break the valve stem and leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere.

    Wheel Offset

    With the Rivian able to auto-squat itself down super low, if the wheel offset pushes the wheels outward any more than factory, you are going to possibly risk rubbing the tires on the fenders when in Lowest Mode. We actually pulled the wheels in a couple millimeters, which lets even wider more aggressive tread width LT275/65R-20 tires fit with ease in every height scenario, on road or off. Also, keeping the wheels tucked in like this, is more Aerodynamic.

    Tire retention

    Method wheels, and some other Run-Flat wheel manufacturers, have implemented designs to help keep the tire on the wheel even when down in the single digit air pressures. A heavy vehicle plus low air pressure, is a perfect combo to have you stranded off road. We designed a tire bead lip that is not as aggressive as the Method Bead-Grip, but does give a similar effect to a Run-Flat wheel. We'll show some testing soon, but the tire will stay on these wheels even at very low pressures!

    Color Choice info

    The Charcoal Metallic is a slightly darker version of Rivian El Cap Granite. In the sun the metallic glimmer is strong. This color will compliment almost any vehicle color well.

    Our Black is called "Light Black", as when the wheels are a deeper darker Black than the tires, it looks odd. This color is more of a very Dark Grey with a little bit of shine to it.

    The Dark Bronze looks almost Black in the shade, but wakes up to a very shimmery, almost Root Beer like color, in the sun.

    The Custom Color option lets you run wild with Prismatic Powders range of colors. Choose a color code here COLOR OPTIONS and lets us know that in the order notes.
