NEED HELP!!!

Hello, I just bought new tires Contintal DFW extreame traction, I went from the OEM size to in the rear 275/45/20 and the rear 295/30/20 and 245/45/20 to 255/45/20 in the front and as soon as they were on the stability track lights all came on.. I put the OEM tires back on and it drives fine. I am at a lost and called my tuner and performance shop up and no one knows... called my great dealership and got the if its not OEM I am wrong answer. I dont understand how everyone has the bigger tires and no issues I go from a 275 to a 295 and its light a christmas tree in my car... can someone help me out???

Only thing I can think is that your new rear tire is about 2" smaller than factory and its causing it to throw a code. You would have been better off with a 295/40/20. It would have been only .6" taller.

Yea the tire place just figured it out... The way it was it was had more then a 2 inch stagger and now after all day of wasting my time and frustration they are ordering bigger front tires to get the stagger under 1 inch. sooo frustrating, they should have know that since I told them it was lowered 1 inch and the computers they use should have let them know there would be issues with it. Can anyone verify this for me... he is ordering 265 for the fronts and im keeping the 295 in the rear.. he said that will give me less then 1 inch stagger and fix the issue, I am still not conviced that 265 will fit without rubing since the car is lowered 1 inch. guess I will find out..

Buddy the best advice I can give you is to find a tire calculator online and figure your heights. That's what I always do.

I'm running 265/35/22 tires up front with 295/30/22 in the rear lowered 1.25" or so with the Eibach Pro Kit and have no lights.

However, I did get a "service stabilitrack" warning while driving over 60 over the weekend for some reason (before lowering springs). I had the tires on for a few weeks before my accident and the install of the lowering springs and was fine even doing about 80MPH. After the accident, got the warning, but haven't had a problem since (not sure if I've gone over 60 since then though). I'm gonna have the body shop who fixed my car look into it when I bring it back for the new headliner.

Ya....it seems like it's a toss up, maybe you'll have a problem, maybe you won't. But there must be something causing it, just don't know what.
