Old thread, but figured I'd ask: I think I already know the answer to this question, but figured I'd ask.

You think I'll have ABS issues with a 275/40/17 front and 325/50/15 rear? My car does not have the Traction Control option.

YES, that's a 2-1/8" height difference.

What would the height difference be on a 275/40/17 and 275/50/15?

Difference is .17", that'll work perfect!

How much wider will the rear tire be with those wheel sizes? Say I go with a 275/50/15 Mickey and some low cost 275/40/17 tire for the fronts.

I ordered tires today. Thank you for your help. I don't want ABS issues, so I went with a 275/40/17 front (Nexen N300) and 275/50/15 Mickey Thompson ET Street Radial.

Yeah, you helped me a lot. It made sense to go with a 26" tall tire with my 3:42 gears and power level. Plus the whole ABS fiasco; didn't want to deal with that.

I am having the same issue. Which abs fuse do I pull? There are four of them. Abs bat1. Abs bat2. Abs bat sol. Abs ign.
