    when using different diameter wheels, to keep the same sidewall height, for looks, your going to end up with different tire heights front to rear. this can cause your ABS to trigger, as your front tires will be spinning faster than your rear tires. the PCM thinks the rear tires are sliding on the road and will activate the ABS when you go to braking.

    i don't know of any proram that can alter the ABS settings to differentiate between front to rear tire heights on f-bodies.

    i have hptuners and it does not do that.
