    Exclamation Tire Diameter And Abs???

    Hey, all. I've heard that a difference in tire diameter (front to back, that is) can set off the ABS. I'm thinking of staggering my wheels and was wondering how much of a difference it'll let me get away with? Anyone have an idea? Thanks!

    I would like to know about this as well, about to buy a 98z28 with z06 rims (17front and 18back) and the abs light stays on. Brakes work fine.

    yes different tire heights front to rear will cause the abs to activate.

    you can have different rim diameters and still have the same overall tire diameter.
