no one is talking about how the CyberTruck has claimed it's first victim? the rest of that tweet:

" Btw, I was so impressed to see it for real that I didn't pay attention on the side of the road approaching the Cybertruck and I fall off from my e-bike... painful accident but great experience. "

Still no still photos to measure everything. It would be nice to get accurate dimensions to compare to the original dimensions released 4 years ago.

Thanks for the closeup of the wheels and tires.

I'm glad to see less aggressive tires on this CT as they will give better mileage, smoother ride and less noise on the highway.
It's a good bet there will be at least two tire options. I plan on going with the most street-biased tread (assuming it's not a pure highway tire), even though I will be doing plenty of off-roading, and only go to a more aggressive tread if I find the off-road performance inadequate.

I remember some articles about how often people actually go "off-road" to the extent you'd really need different tires and suspension. I don't consider a dirt or gravel road off-roading, unless it's deeply rutted.

Even then how many of you are planning on spending more than 10% of your CT driving on roads that good all-weather, reasonable profile (65's are fine) tires can't handle?

Before my MYP I'd reliably offroad my Wrangler 2-3 times a year. I daily drove 35" BFG KM2s. I've ridden on KMs since the 90s and never got a flat on surface roads. By raw numbers, I probably spend less than .1% of my time on a trail.

Here's a 2" bolt that got stuck in a lug. It's the closest I ever came to a flat. It caused a slow leak that gave me a low pressure warning a day or so after picking it up. I remember hearing a clicking noise half way home on a road trip. The bolt top is completely worn off to the shaft here.

I miss thick boy tires. Even if you offroad once a year getting stuck can suck so bad you'll want the tire that keeps you out of trouble the next time. Those tires were also amazing in the rain because the water siped so easily.

The chances I go back to KM2s are high on my CT even though I'll probably only do 100 miles off road per year. Those 100 miles would probably only have a total of 1-2 miles worth of trail that would be a nightmare on all terrains. THOSE are the roads I buy KMs for.

for most people, the tire type and clearance *need* comes down to mud, not rock crawling

trucks that are often on dirt roads, or field roads, that are swamped is when and why people regularly run MS tires or more

and no, those people wouldn't report that as going "off-road" they'd report it as, eg., "going to work"

I am SO tired of the tires on my Model Y being nail magnets; I hope that the CT has a tire option that can really tolerate/survive a job site (and all of the things a tire might encounter therein).

couldnt find R20
Thanks for the up close picture of the tire and the identifying information.

Rugged Terrain. Rugged Terrain tires are between Mud Tires and All Terrain tires. Most off roaders never need mud tires and AT tires are usually more than enough. Granted for serious mudding you need mud tires. imo they probably should have just put road tires on the CT since most people won't even drive down a dirt road, and AT tires would have been overkill but a nice touch.

but I'm sure RT tires are fun too.

If I get one with RT tires I'll probably buy ATs.

the tires shown on this thread's cammo unit are one of two known to be available

the other, more aggressive, also a M&S LT285/65/r20 that have load/speed of 123H

equals about a 13,6000 lb total max load carrying capacity

Is there a part 2 where he boldly walks up to the open window and swings the phone around a couple of times so we can get a gander at the innards?
