    I'm looking to pick up a set of 21" Tesla turbine wheels and I notice at the Tesla shop online that it lists two model numbers, one for pre VIN P50900 and one for post VIN P50900. Anyone know the difference? Thanks.

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

    Just a wild ass guess, but that could be when they cut over to the new TPMS modules, and if you're ordering a wheel+tires+TPMS set, that's how they know. I'm not aware of any specific differences in the actual wheels, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Speaking of which, do the TPMS sensors from the 19" wheels work on the 21" wheels? I should be able to just swap them on?

    I would just buy a second set of TPMS sensors and not bother with swapping them out, that is, if you have two sets of rims+tires.

    That was my initial thought as well but didn't see the sensors on Teslas website - what's the best way to go about getting a set?

    Hmm don't know... Probably your service center has them.

    That's right -- I got a 2nd set from the Rockville Service Center.
