Bridgstone Potenza RE-71Rís Installed

Well i finally got some sticky tires out back and i done went too big, lol. If I wouldíve stuck to 275/30/19ís i wouldíve been fine but I went to 285/35/19ís and got slight rubbing. Only rubs a bit in comfort mode and runs more is S1/S2. Needless to say fender rolling will be done on top of that i got abs/esp malfunction, guessing when they lifted just the back the wheel spun a bit and caused the sensor to trip a code and now i think maybe the speed sensor is done. Same thing happened when i did my E550 everytime i go to do rims and tires i get this code. Either way here are some pics.

Whatís your front tire size, the rolling circumference might be too far off. They look good so who cares about some lights.

Thatís going to be your issue youíll have too hook up to verify. It will be a wheel speed/ can signal implausible fault. You could get new front tires that match the height of the rears to fix the issue.

To get the same diameter/height as the 245/35s you'll have to go to 285/30's

Ah, that should do the trick...just out of curiosity, why the RE71R's in the rear only?

I wasn't going to track the car and I needed traction out back. I like the look of them and from the people around me they always go with the obvious choice NT555Rís or Proxes 888ís and a couple of others.

They look like some pretty serious rear tires. Let us know how they go. They look like a track tire.

You don't actually have to match them, just get closer.
