    What is the diamater of your front and rear tires? If they are different by very much it will trip the ABS light. I was worried about this when I purchased my drag rims and tires and made sure to spec them out as close as I could.

    Tire size/diameter could be the culprit.

    Front tires could be spinning faster than the rears thus setting the ABS light.

    Plugging those numbers into an on-line tire dimension calculator yields a difference in diamater of approximately 2.58". I think mine are within 1" or so and I have no ABS issues.

    These guys are right on. I forget the diameter difference allowed, but your current tires definitely exceed the allowed offset difference for ABS. I thought it was close to 1".

    BTW - I've been to Roanoke before

    It appears that your front tire has a diameter of approximately 24.47" and that your ET Streets should be around 26" -- may still be too much of a difference for the ABS system. Here is a link to the tire size calculator so you can plug some numbers into it: Tire Size Calculator - Discount Tire Direct
