I need help.
I currently put some AMRs on my 2001 GT. They came off a 2012 GT. They fit and everything but when I'm driving I get a green light popping up on the dashboard having to do with the traction. When the light pops up I can't give the car anymore gas anymore. What can be the problem?
Up front I have 19 x 8s AMRs with 245/45/19 tires and on the back I have 19 x 10s with 275/35/19 tires. When I put back my 17 x 9 Cobra Rs on the front with 245/45/17 tires I don't get the problem anymore...what could the problem be. I know it has to do with the from AMR wheels

That's the traction control/ abs I believe. I don't know that it has to do with the wheels as much as it may just have a faulty sensor. I would check and make sure all the wires are out of the way of the new rims, and check the sensors and clean them up.

The amr wheels and tire may be too tall in the front considering they are 2 inches taller then your old ones

if you have 245/45/19s on a car that normally take 245/45/17, then your wheels are moving at a different speed than they are supposed to. so the wheel speed sensors are probably confused as all hell thinking you have awful traction and trying to save your life. (and car)
