Abs and stggered tires
:I'm looking for some input from you guys in the know.I have a set of boze/ze forged wheels 18"frt 19" rr.I realize that when I did this my speedo and abs went bezerk.Icured the speedo and blocked out the ABS lite.but shouldn't the system
work just like a std power system just without the abs function.I ask cause my brkes are real spongy now but I never
broke the system open.Many thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the board long time lurker.
I'm no pro at this stuff but im assuming the overall diameter of your new wheels/tires had changed to impact your speedo. I've done wheel Tire swaps with wider tires on everything I own, but get tires to compensate and keep the stock diameter of the wheel.
Since you recalibrated speedo, your problem is the abs. Can you give any codes? I wouldn't see the wheels immediately causing your abs problem, (least never happened to me). But I imagine with the light on something is amiss

A difference in tire diameter will cause the system to think that a wheel is locking up and result in reduced braking performance as the ABS kicks in. I am uncertain how close the tires need to be in size to avoid this. When I purchased my track wheels and tires, I remember shopping sizes to ensure that the front runners were as close as I could get to the slicks in diameter.
