Why do I need these? Doesn't my Rivian come with everything I need to change tires, rotate them or install new ones at my local Discount Tire (or my favorite shop or at home)?
Answer: No, our Rivians do not include all the necessary tools for tire rotations, new tire installation or to be honest to 'properly' change a tire on the road. To properly lift your vehicle, you will need our Magnetic Jack Puck Kit (4 pucks per kit).
Question: My Rivian came with the spare tire kit, which has the OEM tire change set-up including a large plastic lifting device (puck). Why purchase your magnetic jack puck kit or, am I missing something here?
Answer. Yes, you still need this kit! Technically, you can use the kit supplied by Rivian, but it's a poor solution and you only get one. Rivian didn't exactly put together a good solution to change a tire. In fact the picture below is the "Eiffel Tower Contraption" that they want you to use to fix a flat or take the wheel off. If you look at the picture below, you can see why no-one utlizes that and why, we have sold thousands of our kits. A picture is worth a thousand words!
Beyond the contraption itself, just getting to and retrieving the OEM tools is difficult to say the least. Look at what you have below. A large piece of plastic, in which you place a scissors jack on top, then the top plastic piece is the contraption that attaches to the vehicle. Our customers refuse to use that.

To change, rotate, swap to your winter tires, or install new tires on your Rivian at a tire shop, at home or through your local repair facility, you'll need our Magnetic Jack Pucks. Designed and built by a fellow Rivian owner, to provide the perfect solution.
Alternatively, you or your tire shop can remove multiple plastic panels and hardware to access the frame rail, but this approach risks damaging the plastic clips and/or losing the hardware. Rivian has simplified the process to lift the vehicle by providing four round access points on the frame, covered by removable plastic caps, which serve as lift points. A must have accessory for every Rivian owner.
1. Grip Tech Cap : Removable high traction rubber cap with 48 tactile anti-slip contact points. Grippy in your hand and the caps help secure the puck on your lifting device. No other manufacturer offers this. This feature is especially beneficial for floor jacks and flat metal commercial lifts as it reduces the risk of vehicle or puck slippage. The new caps are also compatible with Gen 1 pucks, making it easy to retrofit (available separately).
2. Intergrated Bottle Jack Port (1.30" dia.)
After six months of successful use on my personal R1T, it was time to introduce our GEN2 magnetic jack pucks with a bottle jack port to the Rivian owning community as an essential product.
Any bottle jack with a top hat diameter of 1.3" or less will fit our pucks. We recommend "The Big Red 10 Ton Bottle JACK by Torin", which is readily available on Amazon for easy purchase. The higher tonnage of the Torin jack effortlessly lifts an R1 vehicle, while the beveled leading edge on the port ensures smooth and precise self-centering of your MagJAXX puck on the bottle jack, optimizing efficiency during operation. An added benefit is that the Torin bottle jack conveniently fits perfectly under the rear seat of the R1T, making it a practical choice for roadside tire changes.
Note: The front two wheels are easily lifted off the ground with the Big Red 10T and a single puck. The rear suspenions has extra travel (droop), which will require either the stacking of two pucks (for added lift) or RV jack pads (yellow pictured) or a 2" high block of your choosing. We carry the kit shown below in our R1 vehicle.
One of the first thing I learned in owning my Rivian R1T (since March of 2022), is that you cannot change a tire, rotate your tires, or even buy new tires and install them without Jack Pucks. So, I designed in Solid Works the perfect solution and then built an amazing padded case to support the product. Simply hand the kit to your tire center and let them take care of everything.
What you will receive:
(4) MagJAXX Magnetic Jack Pucks
(1) Padded Highly Protective Zippered Case
Note: While it only requires a 20" lift floor jack to get the rear tire 1" off the ground, if you have not purchased a floor jack yet, here are our recommendations.
We use either the Harbor Freight 24 1/4" lift 3T Daytona or the Harbor Freight 29 1/16" lift Badlands Off Road Floor Jack.
Many tire installation shops use a post style lift, which will require four (4) Pucks. Free shipping in all 50 US States.
