The only thing it showed was the different tire size from back to front was 1.5 miles per hour diff. I have 305x25x20 rear and 255x35x20 front. The dealer tells me that it is telling the computer that the car is in a skid. Should I change the tires? A lot of Mustangs have larger tires on the rear. My tires are taller on the front. Has anyone had this problem????????????????
The dealer is correct, having the rear tires be that much larger than the front would cause the same problem. Get tires of the same outside diameter, or just turn off the traction control--manually each time you start the car, or permanently in the tune...
