Switched from OC to BM and now got PBA monday, finished 7/8 steps today. Delivery pending. Wahoo! Much earlier than expected which is great with rising interest rates, current high trade in values, and potential tax credit changes.
Congrats - what tires have you selected?

I changed mine to 21s for a week or so as well, but I just can’t do it. I switched back last week… maybe I’ll get lucky! Haha
Is there that much difference between the two sizes of wheels?

The 20" wheels get about 40 miles less range, give or take.

Yep 10-15% range loss is what Rivian says on their site.

Also worth noting though, the 21" tire size is custom to Rivian and there are no aftermarket tires at that size at all. Over time this should change but when is anyone's guess, especially in today's pandemic supply line environment.

I did see at least one of the tire options on the new Chevy Blazer EV will have 21's though so that's encouraging, but it could still be quite the wait for the aftermarket.

I changed my tires to 21" and got confirmation email the next day. 8 steps opened up the day after all the way till Delivery which is locked at the moment. How long does it generally take for this to open folks?

Picked it up yesterday and 200 miles later it’s amazing! A few bits to address, but all cosmetic. Will add more feedback once the perm-a-grin paralysis let’s me!

I think you have to do a bunch of the steps before step 8 opens but I'd suggest asking your guide. It's different for everyone. For me it was fast because my truck was already at the SC, but for others it might be still in Illinois.

Yeah, I'm done with everything but insurance and scheduling delivery. Both are waiting on delivery date (so I can start insurance on that day).
