I have been checking orders and comments in general but couldn’t see the tyre selections much.

How is your preference? And why?

I found 22” tyres a bit aggressive and large.

My tire selection is 21" 1010 Bicolour (I assume it is Front / Rear: 21x9.0, 255/50 R21) and looks as follows:
Car order model is named as First Edition Essence xdrive 40

Keep in mind it is very likely the 22" will have an impact on range, at least that is what I would expect. Something to take into account when buying an EV.

I went for 22" wheels, hoping that they don't adversely affect ride (I recall reading a review that said that ride was very good with the larger wheels), and I thought that the dimensions of the vehicle could handle the larger wheel as well. I had an M5 some years back with really nice wheels that were something like $2500/ corner, and the dealer convinced me to pay some exorbitant fee to insure them if they got dinged. But, the parking cameras had just advanced so much that I managed to not damage the wheels, and haven't had that unpleasant experience of grinding a wheel against a curb since. Also, it seems that it is much less expensive to repair a wheel now than it used to be, so perhaps less of a worry for some.
