Is there any way other than VIN to determine which Tire pressure sensors you have?

    I have a Model s built in Sept 2014 with VIN 512XX which is after VIN 50900 which is when they apparently switched to the new pressure sensors but I don't have the Pressure Sensor Widget. The reason I ask is that I am buying a second set of rims for winter tires and don't want to wait until they are installed to find out that I need to replace the sensors.

    Have you asked Tesla? They should have the details for your specific vehicle. That's better than relying on the sequence of VIN numbers, which may not map cleanly to production changes.

    Just call a service center and ask for parts.

    Just got my reply from service center in Montreal and it appears that I have the old sensors even though my serial number is greater than the 50900 where the change was made.
