Staggered tire = alarms?

Post by Numbah1 » Thu Aug 08, 2019 12:45 am

Going to staggered tires.
At what point will the car throw an alarm because a MPH difference? Will they fit says ill have .5 mph split at 30 front to rear

And at what point is a gear change also requiring a trans computer change?
Im only going 15mm more dia. I asume its not enough to matter to the trans

I'm wondering the same thing. I have a 3.5% difference between the front 255/35r19's and the rear 285/35r19's and I'm wondering if this is enough to trip the ABS.

I ordered the wrong front sizes. It should have been 255/40r19. These fit well on my CTS wheels.
