same problem here when I went from 245/40/17 to 255/40/17 in the front; rears did not change; im lead to believe the guy who mounted the tire f-ed something up like the sensors but I havent taken a real close look.

alright alright...so i am assuming you have a cluster that looks like a lit up x-mas tree huh...The lights that i currently have on are those and my check gauges. reason for the check gauges is cuz of my fuel needle taking false readings. i will get that fix in the upcoming month though...lol

You won't find what is actually wrong with it with a regular handheld scanner. You'll need the tech scanner GM uses to find the issues for the ABS problems. My ABS INOP light came on about a year ago and I had the same issue trying to find what was wrong... I forget the name of the scanner, but I took it to a shop that had one and they told me/showed me that the ABS computer was shot. I ended up buying a used one for 50 bucks and haven't looked back.
