    Tesla store shows this if wanting to order 21" wheel package:

    Tesla PN:

    VIN < P50900: 1019311-00-B
    VIN > P50900: 1053755-00-A

    Does anyone know what the change is when VIN is above P50900?
    Would 21" wheels from a lower VIN fit VIN above P50900?

    I could be wrong but I believe that there was a TPMS change around that bin range, maybe the 21"s come with TPMS included thus they would need to know the vin.

    There is a difference in the TPMS sensors depending the VIN range. The wheels has no different, only the TPMS.

    can wheels be interchanged then? i.e. Can I put Pre VIN 50900 wheels ONTO a later VIN and TPMS will still work?

    No, the VINs are to delineate the TPMS sensor switch over from a Chinese brand (IIRC) to Continental's TPMS. Thus, if you want your TPMS to work, you must have the correct sensors for your VIN.

    Good news: the current price for four new Continental TPMS sensors is only $200 ($50 each) plus tax; no idea what the older sensors cost.

    p.s. Note that you'll also have a constant warning light if your TPMS isn't working . . .

    Thank you TSLA Pilot. OEM Grey 21" are out of stock and not sure when they will be ready. Looking at AXIS wheels right now that are very similar.
