I have a M3 RWD with 18" aeros and am thinking about buying 20" wheels from someone who is getting delivery of his M3P. Does anyone know if there's any fit issues with this? I'm confused because looking at the tesla shop, there is a note that says

https://shop.tesla.com/us/en/produc...model-3-20_-sport-wheel-and-tire-package.html
*This package is not compatible with Model 3 Performance Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive configured with the Performance Upgrade – Contact your nearest Tesla Service Center for more details

I assumed the 20" on the M3P and the 20" they are selling in the tesla shop are the same? But it doesn't seem to be the case. Also, I would only be buying the wheels and won't be getting the lowered suspension so I think I would have to buy 2 x rear upper fore links too. Can anyone advise? Thanks!

The Performance plus (20" rims etc) have a hub that the other Model 3 OEM rims do not fit due to different brake hub.

The other 20" rims were available before the 'big brake' kit update for the 3 and are different; whether they are different as in both won't fit the RWD car is something I would confirm with service folks...
