F10 - tires/wheels pre and post 9/10 build

Hope this isn't answered somewhere else on here already. I want to get some winter tires/wheels for my pre-9/2010 build 2011 535i and I noticed that some ebay listings and bmwusa show that there are different wheel/tire setups for pre and post 9/2010 builds. Any idea what the difference is.
Thanks.

No difference on tires or wheels. The difference is in the Tire Pressure Monitor sensors. They were changed at that production date.

Thanks this helps a lot. I assume if installed the warning would probably come on for the TPMS even if there were no problem?
