    The width alone doesn't matter. Its all about the overall diameter of the tire, which incorporates both width and aspect ratio. So a 265/40/18 is going to have a different overall height than a 265/45/18. what you need to do is go on the tire manufacturer's site and find the spec sheet, it will list the overall diameter for each tire they make so you can pick two that will be the same or very close to the same height.

    Correct, its the difference in diameter that will cause ABS issues, not the width. If the diameter between the front and rear tires is off more than half an inch I believe, then you will run into ABS issues.

Which would be a valid/good combo for no abs problems in ur opinion? or am i even close? Thx for once again for ur insight wesman and Y2kpewter.
