Putting 2022 19" wheels/tires on 2017 Model S?

Hi,

Does anyone know if the new tempest wheels/tires will fit on the older model S? From what I understand they are slightly wider and I want to make sure they will work well for both driving dynamics and computer not freaking out.

Bonus question, will I see substantial improvements in range, performance, and/or comfort going from 21" turbines? If I switch, I'll keep the hubs on.

I bought used Tempest 19" wheels with standard all season 245/45 R19 XL tires with gen II TPMS from a person who said the wheels were used on his 2017 MS. Installed the Tempest wheels today on my 2013 MS P85 with air suspension. No fitment problems, though I still have not driven in the low suspension setting. Installed the covers to see if there is any range gain over my 21" turbine and arachnid wheels.

If you reed the web then it might give you around 6% mileage gain, so around 20 miles. If the rims are wider than 8,5 inch then you need at least 5mm spacers on front as it might come in contact with suspension parts. Rear would be fine. You need also to check does they come with the refresh type of TPM valves or with suitable Continental type.

What would be the issue if they come with The new TPM valves?
 
Every reply here missed the original question.

OP wants to know if the new (2021+) Tempest wheels will work on the older Model S (2013-2021 pre-Paladium).

The offsets are different and will push the wheels further out toward the fender. In my opinion, they should fit but I cannot validate that. If they do fit, they should be more visually appealing than the 2020/2021 Tempest wheels because they will fill out the wheel well better. but again, I have not seen it on the forum yet so I am not 100% sure they will fit without issues.

You will need Spacers
He absolutely would not need spacers, as the new wheels are already a more aggressive offset.

Your TPMS system cannot use the new sensors. The 2021+ cars use a Bluetooth sensor and the older cars do not have that technology. The good news is the older style sensors are cheap and readily available on Amazon. The newer BT sensors are expensive and can only be purchased from Tesla or someone reselling Tesla sensors, so you can remove the BT ones and sell them for a profit compared to the older style sensors.

They will still keep the air in the tires for sure but as @cmarshack described you will get annoyance on the IC about tires not sufficient pressurised. As I do not know the refresh rim data (though that OP would know as is interested in purchase), then I suggested that if the rim width is more than 8,5 inch and the offset is same as old 40mm then your new setup will come in contact with the suspension part at front. I have summer tyres on 9inch width rims and have to use 5mm spacers at front axle to come clear on installing.

Can you please link the sensors on amazon that you recommend getting?
